Great fungi shots. A little creepy looking, though. Very interesting, too. The trail shots were very good. The trail looked well used, and clean. That "ridge" you were shown on looked like a petrified pile of chopped wood that had sort of fallen over and then turned to stone. Very interesting.
Beautiful hike! I did look like climbing though so I was kind of surprised as the "gentle" description LOL. I consider a hike gentle if it doesn't have much climbing. But almost all in my area include climbing. Maybe the trail wound more gently up than I'm imagining it which could make a big difference. Anyway it's beautiful! 1752 days ago
