Today Pixie and I hiked the Bruce Trail overlooking beautiful Dyer's Bay, there are 9 pics on my page. And as a bonus after a spectacular hike on the back trail/shortcut back to the car we came across an endangered species. Massassaga Rattler, and a huge one at that!

It's great that you have grandchildren. Having an enthusiatic partnes helps to keep you motivated. My dog is with my son for a few days, and I haven't been motivated to get outside and hike. Keep up the exercise and fun!
I was able to go hiking with my grandson yesterday for about an hour before it started pouring at Brazos River State Park. The Texas Coastal area is having alot of rain. So anyway, we stopped by the nature center and got to hold a 10" baby alligator and that was really nifty.
ooh, you got a chance to explore a bit too. i love the idea of that, and with the neighborhoods around here that i've never really been down (i live in the sticks, so "neighborhoods" means plotted subdivisions deep off the farm road about a mile or more from me in every direction).
but whoa, that's cool, being able to hang with nature and learn about it and get some good exercise in at the same time.
I'm a nerd out of habit, not out of spite.

I hiked in the same general area I have been on the past few weeks. It is around the summit above the Pennsylvania Turnpike on the border of Westmoreland and Somerset Counties. It is in the Forbes State Forest. While hiking down Hickory Flats Road, a dirt access road into the Forbes State Forest, I came upon a forest management project. They showed four examples of forest management. They had signs explaining them and you could look off into the woods and see how the forest looked with each example. They had picked one they thought was the right one but set off areas to show you examples of the others. This road apparently slowly descended, because then when I got to the dirt road trail back, I had to climb back up to 2800 feet, which was quite a workout! It was so beautiful back up there on the summit. I also got to see a deer.
