Once the rain stopped yesterday I had to get out of the house but I didn't want to go too far and end up in a traffic jam.  So I headed west to this little spot for some birdwatching and photography.  The beginning of the trail cut through Ashe juniper monoculture, but the canyon at the end of the trail is one of those gorgeous hill country canyons with maidenhair fern and sycamores.  I only saw two other people on the property, one being a neighboring resident letting her dog roam free (tsk tsk!).  It's a nice place for an afternoon walk.
