We know I've already hiked all the Buckeye Trail. Sure, some parts have changed, but I don't think this one has. I remember rocks, but I must not have been paying attention. (Walking in my sleep?) The rocks on this section were amazing. Not part of a park, but they must be on public land since there was also a bridle trail.
First, we climbed to the top of a wooded ridge with a nice view over the valley. The spring trees are just getting to the phase I love best.
Then we descended to the tops of some rocky cliffs. This area is known for good rappelling spots, and we came across a statewide training session for rescue teams. There were about 15 people in the group being taught how to get up and down the cliffs with rescue baskets.
Just a ways beyond them, we turned a corner and began to descend through a crack in the rocks till we were down in front of the rock faces.
Total miles hiked today about 6.5
After a nice dinner we drove around Lake Logan.
Tomorrow, Marie says goodbye and heads home. I can't put a good spin on that, but our time together has certainly been wonderful.
