I went to Lake Metigoshe St park here in ND this weekend, they have a few trails I did some short day hikes on today and yesterday. I realized when I got there my camera was dead so these photos are from my phone.

The trail head I began at was made for multi use 4-wheelers/horses mt biking and hikers.


A little ways in a separate hiking trail split off to tour the few lakes and ponds in the area. I did about 5 miles the first day some of that back-tracking, and about 7 the second (my phone died overnight and I forgot my car charger as well).

All in all despite the fact that it rained most of the night it was a great, even if too short trip, I will leave you all with a few more shots I got from the first day.





Looks like beavers.


Yup and found their home!


My dogs love the trail!

Ready for the rain that was forecast and came after dark after a spectacular lightning bug show (natures most accurate weatherman) they were lighting up all over the place about an hour before the rain started.

Thanks for the feedback guys, and keep your reports coming in. A lot of fun to read reports from other areas of the country (even if it does make me wish I lived somewhere with more hiking options)
