Eighteen hikers braved a lot of fog, trudging through a little more than six miles. Towards the end of our journey the sun finally broke through revealing massive boulders, ancient rock art and flowers galore.
Twenty-nine hikers came out today. Chestnut-sided Warbler sang along the way. “Please, please, please, pleased to meet’cha” we heard him say as we wandered along the Coon Branch way. Then we carried on another 4 miles to see the majesty of Lower Whitewater Falls. A totally blissful spring day!
What a beautiful day for twenty-four to explore! Double the delight with two gorgeous waterfalls. We hiked a little over four and the group was clamoring for more. So we tacked on one more mile at Devils Fork State Park. The Oconnee Bells were out in all of their splendor.
Twenty Three hiked East Fork from the Fish Hatch-eree! The rain came early, causing all to hurry. We still managed to hike more than six miles, along beautiful rushing rapids and gently rolling trails.
