|They were so sweet and yummy and made for frequent snacking.|
|She knew we were joking. LOL|
|This was the turnaround point of our hike. At this|
point we took a selfie and headed back.
As we headed back, we decided to follow a different trail....and soon came across this amazing, peaceful location.
|You wouldn't catch me biking this anytime soon!|
As we were hiking back, we kept saying..."Let's remember where we come out so when we come back we can find our way back in again." Well....that was easier said than done! I have no idea if I could find that rock/peaceful spot again. LOL I will definitely come back and hike this trail again! I think there are still paths that I haven't travelled! Next time I'll pack a picnic and sit at one of the many open spaces and just enjoy the peacefulness!
The overall hike took us about 1 hour 25 minutes or so with only a short break at the lake. I would recommend this trail hike for anyone new to hiking, or someone who would like a short hike to get out in nature. There are some steep rock climbs/descents but definitely doable if you watch your footing!
Reminder to those hiking...go prepared! I had my camelbak filled with water, a few energy snacks, and a foil blanket just in case it was needed. Of course I had my cell phone as well. It is better to be prepared and not have to use it than the alternative!! Have fun!!
