A Three Mile Hike Round Two

These are the last photos from today, walking the very easy First Creek Trail. You gain about one thousand feet of elevation from where you began. This trail goes well beyond where I went as I learned from chatting with others along the trail.

Given my health, I kicked some serious ass on this walk and turned back when the body said enough. Listen to your body. Photos can’t fully express the beauty of this magical little place, with it’s natural spring water crick moving briskly as you walk.

A lovely sound. The base of the nearby mountains add to the scene, and the sound of the wind passing through the trees and bush nearby. Obviously, there is a spring further up ahead somewhere, wish I could include it in this post and my photo collection.
