Hike Saturday #1 - Swayback Bridge Trail
Hike: Hike Saturday #1, Sat. 01/23/2010 08:45-10:45, Swayback Bridge Trail
Distance: 4 miles Rating: 5/5
Conditions: Breezy; cloudy; mid to high 40's. Trails wet from recent rains.
Hike Saturday #1. Nine people and two canines. Had a great time of fellowship and enjoyment of GOD's creation.
Ground still wet from recent rains. Little muddy for first half mile but okay afterward. Observed several beautiful Eastern Bluebirds in hardwood bottom forest, woodpeckers, turkey vultures, and red tailed hawk. Were not treated to any whitetail deer today - perhaps they were hunkered down due to the wind. No mountain bikers today, we were the first trail users. (Larry G., Nathan, Jon, Amber, Barry, Pam, Liz, Tammy, and me along with Jake and Peanut.) A very good first Hike Saturday.
Devotional thoughts from Psalm 8. GOD created all for HIS glory and our enjoyment. We are charged with management and care of HIS Creation!
