I almost forgot about posting the following pictures taken last Friday. We had planned on getting out to do some paddling in the canoe, but Mother Nature gave us a blowsy, wet start to the day so we switched plans to puttering around home.
Then around noon, the sun came out and a couple of hours later, we had decided to hike a short but steep trail that leads to a fantastic overlook. I'm not jesting about this being a steep trail; I was leading the way up and had to stop at least three times (okay, closer to every ten steps) for my body to recover sufficiently to go on.
We didn't get to the top until late afternoon so the light and colors weren't as spectacular as they can be, but still very much worth the hike.
Not a bad view to take in after making it to the top.
Good-lookin' guy, good-lookin' scenery.
There is an almost 180 degree view over which to oogle.
On the way down (MUCH easier going this direction), I tried to show just how steep the trail is but my camera couldn't capture the (puff-puff) perspective of (puff-puff) the incline. You'll just have to take my (puff-puff) word for it.
A Friday afternoon gorgeous hike and view and we had the area to ourselves. Well, except for that geriatric guy with the walker that really put me to shame. (Just kidding!)
