I am still feeling flu-like so I only hiked an hour in the area of Little Presque and the Songbird Delta. I was pooped and yawning on my way back to the car. I was hoping to stay moving 2 hours. I didn't measure distance.

Oh and have fun on your first hike of spring break! There will be birds for sure!
