One way to deal with the summer heat here is to drive a couple of hours north and go for a hike in the mountains. Being near water is always a bonus. When I got back from my trip back East, my husband drove me up to a place called Horton Creek. He had discovered it while I was out of town. He had such a great time on his hike that he wanted to share it with me. The photos below come from my iPhone. I do understand that the pictures are repetitive, but when you live where it's going to be over 100 degrees until the end of September, water is precious, especially cold spring water like this.
