Back on the Trail - It's been a month!

Hike: Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail, Lake Martin, AL Mon. 12/15/2008 10:05-14:47
Distance: 8.4 Miles
Rating: 5/5
Difficulty: Moderate
Conditions: Cloudy; very mild temps; a few light sprinkles near the end of hike. No other people on the trail today.
Saw two white-tailed deer doe (and one carcass floating in Lake Martin), Great Blue Heron, a few dogs (they barked at me but didn't bother me), one small lizard, and lots of birds (as usual). Noticed there were still some large grasshoppers around (would have thought they would be dead or gone due to the cold).
A very nice enjoyable (and needed) hike. It's been a month since I've been able to get out and hike. Thank YOU for this special time and place, LORD. It's so easy to get "side-tracked" because of the "busy-ness" of the season. Times like this help me to refocus.

I really like that trail, too. If you are interested in hiking in the Lake Martin area, you may want to try some of the Russell Forest trails over off of hwy 63, north of Kowaliga Bridge. I also wrote about hiking on the Deadening Alpine Trail on my blog, Lake Martin Voice, on this post:

Good luck, maybe I will see you around on the trails.
