Beautiful trail, lots of mosquitoes

Large, beautiful park with both long stretches of shady forest and big open meadows. A decent amount of elevation for our mostly flat part of the world. If only we could have stood still for more then a second to take it all in ÔÇö the endless mosquitoes kept us moving.
