Short meander

I went on up this wet trail until it seemed to terminate in an area of springs and spongy marsh. It was found on a spur from a track that I've taken many times in the past month or so. I think it's a tributary of Liverpool Creek, but this area is so laced with small creeks and springs, it's hard to say with certainty what any of them are.

I went short purposely because of the long one Sunday and the longer-and-steeper-than-intended runs Tuesday and Wednesday. Even today I was tempted to keep exploring. I basically was taking every minor spur off this track. Turns out they're minor for a reason: One just was a little detour that may be to a little campsite; the other just went up to this spring area.

This just shows how minor the trails sometimes become. On my way back to the car, I actually met a pickup truck with two guys in it. They waved. And on my way in the car to my starting point, I met two runners, a man and later a woman, heading back toward town on Sucker Creek Road.
