Hike: "Mixed Greens", Swayback Trail of Legends, Lake Jordan Alabama; Saturday, 3/5/2016, 07:30-11:30CST
Distance: 7.5 miles Difficulty: Easy Rating: 4.5/5
Conditions: Clear. Calm. Lake tranquil. Low 40s to low 60s. Trails very wet/muddy from recent storms.
Absolutely fantastic day for a hike. Could not ask for more perfect weather. Clear skies. Calm. Cool temperatures (but no rain and no wind). Trails were wet and muddy in spots, but not a significant issue. Since I got an early start, I had no other company on the trails until 10:30 or 11:00. Encountered a few mountain bikers and several hikers. Kudos to a Dad taking two small sons hiking; a Mom hiking with her two young sons; and a Dad with his young daughter -- glad to see these families out enjoying GOD's Creation.
Birds of all types were busy today. Several different woodpeckers were tapping out their respective cadences. No gray squirrels were observed today.
Enjoyed my time of worship, prayer, and introspection. Getting ready for church tomorrow!
