Edge of the Old Field

Black and white photo of trees lining the edge of an old field.

An iPhone photo of some trees lining the edge of an old field, taken one dreary winter morning a year-and-a-half ago while hiking in a local county park with my kids. I hope to get back there in more ideal light with another camera, but I post because I’m also hoping to map this park and its trails.

Many of our local parks have wonderful trails that are poorly mapped, with some lines on a blank white brochure page. With no indicators of trail scenery, terrain, difficulty, or even tree blaze color, it can make choosing a new hike with kids intimidating.
