YESTERDAYS HIKE


We had a great hike yesterday! Jesse led us up behind the beaver ponds for about 7 miles to a beautiful waterfall he discovered.
At one spot we had to climb through this tree to get over a body of water!
We walked on roads that were covered with grass and some had a strip of grass down the middle. At times the trees made a canopy over the roads
and in some places we took shortcuts through places that looked like the haunted forest in 'Wizard of Oz'.

The falls were beautiful and high. There was a straight cliff down and I'm amazed Jess even found the place. We sure enjoyed the time together. A side note, it took us about 2 1/2 hours to get there and we were kinda draggin our feet thinking about hikin 2 1/2 hours home, but, Jess found another way back. We kinda came out in a different spot when we went through the haunted forest. So Jess just went running ahead. Me and Arlo were lookin at each other wonderin 'what the heck?' Then Jess yells to us "I'm on the road by the beaver ponds!" Hallelujah!!! That cut 2hours off our hike home!!!
