Hike: Gold Trail at Swayback, Friday, 3/13/2015, 09:45-12:00CDT
Distance: 4 miles Rating: 4/5
Conditions: Cloudy. Temps in upper 50s. Wind blustery. Trails very wet from continuing rains.
Quick late morning hike ahead of the rain. Enjoyed my trail time immensely. Seeing the woodland violets in bloom brought a smile to my face -- this is one of my favorite flowers. I was greeted to a fantastic display of the delicate purple flowers along the trail side at about the 3/4 point of the hike. It was also a special treat to see a bluebird among the passerines busy about their bird-business. Red Maples, Redbuds, and pears have started to bloom. Spring is indeed on its way!
Thoughts and Prayers for several of my fellow faith-family members who are sick or recovering from recent surgeries.
Looking forward to services on Sunday. We will be looking at "TBD"... from 1 John 3.
