This morning we hiked in Hickory Hill Park within Iowa City. It is surrounded by residential properties. There are thick stands of old growth hickory, walnut, oak, locust, maple, ash, and others. We met a few other hikers with their dogs and one runner. We had the park mostly to ourselves.
The weather was great today. This morning dawned with a temperature of 54˚. Three days ago the high was 101˚. What a difference a cool front makes. Thank you, Canada. Still no rain.
