7 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain •
Lovely autumn day in Forest Park. I'm still recovering from a stomach bug so the main goal was, to get out and see the leaves and the new Burnside crossover bridge. Lots of happy people and a Pileated woodpecker, doing his tree sculpting work a foot of the trail seemingly unconcerned with all the dogs, runners and the mini traffic jam of us snapping pics. Wonderful day.
