Mostly pictures today. We went on a hike to see some waterfalls. The “road” to the trail head was very rough and part of it included fording a small stream–which I did not get a picture of, since I was bouncing around a little bit!
The trail was narrow and steep, starting out going way, way down and then up, up, up! We were so disappointed that the bridge was out at the main stream. There were not enough sticks laying down in the water to make me brave enough to cross it. If it had been warmer though, I probably would have taken off my shoes and waded!
Saw lots of trees down in the forest, of course, and the mushroom growths are so very beautiful.
The most fascinating thing to me, though, was the root system that held the trees firmly to side of the mountain.
And this single tree system continued
It was absolutely amazing to see this clinging to bedrock, supporting the tree and a major section of the trail as well.
And since we didn’t get to the waterfalls, we did the tourist thing at an old mill creek and dam.
We finished our outing with a big ol’ juicy burger and were quite happy to get back for an afternoon nap.
What a great day!
I guess I liked this spot the best…several pictures! Hahaha!
