The rain helped bring the temperatures down from blisteringly hot to pleasant, if muggy.

I arrived at Rust Manor to find a wedding reception in full swing, complete with DJ. I could hear the music from pretty much everywhere in the park, unfortunately, but that's hardly the worst thing in the world.

Unfortunately, Rust Manor is not the best place to hike when it's wet. The wooded trails are slick, the meadow is soaked, and the paved trail down to the pond is steep enough to be a little slippery in the rain.
