Hike: Gold Trail, Swayback TOLA; Saturday, 5/7/2016; 08:00-10:00CDT
Distance: 4 miles Difficulty: Easy Rating: 4/5
Conditions: Low 60s to low 70s. Calm. Mostly sunny. Trails mostly dry and in good shape. Some vines beginning to encroach on trails and flying insects are busy.
Bird choirs were well represented today. Great opportunity to get-out and enjoy GOD's Creation -- to commune with HIM. Certainly was refreshing after two long weeks of outage work. Cut the hike short to get back home to spend some time with Kathy in the backyard and finish preparations for Mother's Day on Sunday.
Notable Equipment: MountainSmith lumbar pack; Merrill Moab hiking boots; OKC RAT5; Ramblr app; REI trekking poles.
