Distance: 4.7 miles Difficulty: Easy. Family and Pet friendly Rating: 4/5
Conditions: Clear. Beautiful blue sky. Calm. Lake was tranquil. Low 30s at start headed to Hi of about 63 today. Trails wet and muddy in spots from recent storms. A couple of blow-downs due to previous stormy weather necessitated at least one minor detour.
A little more comfortable hiking weather than yesterday due to calm winds. Sky was clear and Lake Jordan was peaceful. Only a couple of bass boats made an appearance.
Birds (of several different stripes) and gray squirrels were quite busy today. Woodpeckers' cadence could be heard in several spots.
Encountered a few mountain bikers, a handful of other hikers, and a couple of dogs (both on leash -- and one of them needed to be on leash!).
Time of prayer and worship -- Hiking is a spiritual refreshing time for me. It is cathartic to be immersed in GOD's Creation as I fellowship with HIM.
