I returned to the Elk River trail in SE Kansas, this time with 6 others from the Sierra Club. We hiked the eastern 9.5 miles just like last time so I still haven’t seen the western end. Saturday was cloudy but it didn’t rain this time. The skies cleared overnight and the temperature dropped just below freezing. Sunday was all sunshiny and eventually warm.
I enjoyed the trip and still enjoyed the trail, even though the novelty was gone. It’s great to have a place like this relatively close to home. I neglected to take many pictures but I think the camera generally didn’t capture the essence anyway.
