[waterfall I found beside the road.
Gathered lots of leaves that managed to survive the trip in my pocket.
Got all sappy trying to figure out a way to bring back some big, long pine cones. Never did figure it out, but the sap stayed with me til I got home. It was really nice to go my own pace and not over do it. I am pretty sure I made it to the top, and started going down the other side...then figured I'd better turn around and go back the way I came because I had no idea where I would end up. I'm super excited to get to show this new path to Nick. We have done part of this trail before, but I took a different turn and explored a completely different one. It was a nice surprise to find that the climbs were broken up with some down hill action.
