Last Tuesday I went hiking in Washington Park with friends. It was pitch black and a storm whipped rain down on us like a fire hose.
A cold rainy night in January and we were not alone on the muddy trails, encountering two other groups of hikers.
This is why, rain or shine, during daylight hours all the inner-city hiking trails are well-used, or even super highways when the weather is just the slightest bit cooperative.
The picture above is from Tuesday night -- a selfie I took in the garage. There was nothing to photograph outside except darkness and rain. I even had to use a GPS app to navigate the trails as the rain and headlamp made everything two steps stranger in the haze.
A really great night. Looking forward to next Tuesday.
