I am not forgetting that I have things to show you yet from Alabama. However, today was the monthly Spirit of the Woods hike, and I couldn't let that pass without sharing.
We started at Seaton Creek Campground and headed across the Manistee River on the suspension bridge that has been nicknamed Little Mac, because it's just a "little" smaller than the Big Mac.
The river was beautiful. It had rained earlier in the morning, and the colors all looked very rich.
Possibly because of that early rain, only three of us showed up to hike, Dave, Loren and me. That was ok. We are good friends and it was nice to just walk and talk with each other. Often on group hikes we are trying to get to know new people so we don't get to visit ourselves.
With wet trunks and sun trying to break through the gray sky, you can really see why red pine get their common name!
We walked an hour and a half- no clue how far... just till we felt like turning around. Then we walked back to the car and ate our lunches.
The colors aren't quite at peak yet, but they aren't shabby!
Sorry for no post last night, but the drive home took forever. Construction turned most of Indiana into a parking lot, and I went directly to work, without even going home.
