Winter hike at Van Meter

January 24, 2009
How I spent my New Year's Day. I went for a hike at Van Meter State Park with good friend Dennis Hopkins of Blackwater. Most folks don't think of winter as prime hiking season, perhaps, but the park shows a different side with decaying foliage wrapped around its ankles.
