The fog rolled in really fast yesterday. I decided to go to a spot I've been thinking about for a long time. A spot I found on my dirt-bike last summer. It's a place in the Coburg Hills that you get to by going up McGowan Creek Road in Springfield.

It was a 10 minute hike from the road. The problem is I stayed until after sunset. Getting back to my car took 20 minutes. It was so dark by then I couldn't see the trail. At first, I thought I passed it. I back-tracked. Turns out I didn't pass it...I didn't go far enough.

I have to admit, walking around in the woods at night is a bit scary.
