Easter 2014 Afternoon Hike - Swayback

Hike: Lakeside Trail, Swayback Bridge, Wetumpka, AL - Easter Sunday 2014 - 16:20-18:26CDT
Distance: 5 miles  Rating: 5/5
Difficulty:  Easy
Conditions: Gloriously sunny and blue sky.  Upper 70s.  Wind Calm.  Trails very wet and muddy in spots from recent rains.
Enjoyed a wonderful Easter afternoon hike along the Lakeside Trail (one of my modifications of the Swayback Bridge Trail of Legends). Spring is in its prime -- much better here than at Cheaha last week.  My eyes were greeted to a myriad of wildflower blooms - white, yellow, gold, blue, indigo, pink, lavendar, and rose.  Cosmos, violets, phlox, iris, dogwood, and others I could not identify-- all graced the trail side and fields.  My ears were serenaded by birdsong throughout the hike.  What a wonderful way to end Easter?  Thank YOU, LORD,  for this special treat.  It is a sight that rivals the spring hike in the Superstition Wilderness of years ago

12 "For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
-- Isaiah 55:12 (NKJV)
