Hiked through Racoon Creek Park today, the leaves were beautiful. Of course, the weather is a bit on the cold side -- 38 degrees F.

A young tree had fallen across the creek. It was very tempting to try to slide down it -- just to make it to the other side. Two things argued against this course of action, however:

1) the water was colder than a witch's tit
2) the tree looked barely thick enough to support my weight

So I decided that there would be no fool-hardy tree crossing for me.

Ben was of a different mindset. He took off his clothes (Emily, apparently, didn't mind) and went three quarters of the way across before falling to the ice water.

Crazy Californian Apple employees.
