Franklin asked if I wanted to do a hike. Hmmm...OK. I had been talking about a mushroom hike. I asked around and Deception Creek was tossed out as a possibility for a mushroom hike.

The hike started out a bit cold...and wet. Didn't seem much in the way of mushrooms. A few I couldn't identify, one small amanita. Still it was fun to do a hike with just Franklin. Goofy Franklin. He would race on ahead and when I'd catch up he'd be hoved over something, a rock...a stream...taking photos. Was really nice to do a trip just with Franklin.

We didn't get far, only about 2.5mi in, before my knees had enough and it was time to turn around.
