Bles Park, to my surprise, was completely deserted. I made it about two-thirds of the way along the eerily quiet main trail before deciding to turn back, thanks to a slightly twisted ankle during a previous hike.

Still, Bles remains one of my favorite parks, simply because of the variety of views (stream-side, pond-side, dense thicket). It's nothing amazing in and of itself, but it's such a nice little obscure find.
