More Hiking Pictures

Hiking the trail was such a peaceful, experience - sometimes full of surprises. Riley stirred up a small copperhead snake. EEEK! It was in the rocks nearby where we took this Keown Falls picture. I'm happy to say we parted ways with it with no harm done.

A unique little spring was along side the trail. It just bubbled up out of no where - clear & cold as could be, then it trickled down along the trail for about 10 yards & then water just disappeared back into the ground. The boys enjoyed tasting fresh spring water...especially on the way back down the mountain when we were hot & tired. Riley thought it was refreshing too...he laid down in it!
