Drinking Horse Trail is one of my favorite spots to go hiking. I had decided to take one last hike up the trail as fall began to set in. I'm a wuss when it comes to winter hiking. One small problem though, the weather decided that was a good day to rain. Hum, not exactly the crisp fall day I was hoping for. Fortunately, I didn't let that deter me and dug my umbrella out from under the front seat. I have never seen so many opportunities to photograph water droplets before. (Perhaps I need to get out in the rain more often.) While I quite enjoyed the bejeweled beauty of nature, that wasn't the best part. Toward the end of my trek, I found a little treasure taking shelter from the rain under a thistle blossom. Turned out to be a gorgeous day after all.
