I hurt my back a week ago. Then my ankle and thighs, compensating for my sore back, began to hurt a few days later. This is one of those times when bad weather is a blessing and I won't feel the need to try to do something ridiculous, like riding a bike.
The good news is things are slowly getting better, and a little activity actually helps, so with today being the only sunny day in an otherwise dismal forecast I paid a visit to Ankeny Wildlife Refuge.
I’ve honestly not seen the water this high before. It was up to the edge of the boardwalk, and then finally spilling over the top. I could see the end of the walk, but I didn’t bother to wade through the last two puddles.
|Almost to the end and|
finally the whole walk is underwater
Heading back to the car I spotted these cute little boots waiting by the sign. There were some children on a hike and I guess they left them here to change into once they finish. They'll be wishing they had their boots when they find the puddles.
