Distance: 2.3 miles Difficulty: Easy Rating: 5.0/5.0
Conditions: Perfect! Bright blue sky. Lower temps (70s) with lower humidity. Nice breeze. Trails were in good shape. A few other people in the park, but Gracie and I had the trails largely to ourselves.
Perfect day and spot for a hike. One could not ask for better weather, or better companionship! Gracie did magnificent off-leash! She seems to enjoy the hiking (maybe not as much as I do) and certainly is enthusiastic about frisbee-play time.
The Coosa was a little choppy from the breeze. The Tallapoosa was surprisingly brown -- presumably from recent rains.
The trails in the area of the confluence of the two rivers has changed due to the Tallapoosa undercutting the banks. Several areas have fallen into the river. It is still a magical place. Gracie seemed to enjoy the view of the Coosa more than the Tallapoosa.
Some tall, purple wildflowers were showing off. It's early for Fall, but the weather and these blooms certainly put me in the mood for my favorite time of year!
