The path just kept going, though it was a little faint due to all the fallen leaves.
Down by the river it looked like I might have to start scooting around a cliff and I didn't know how much farther I'd be able to go.
But as I started rounding the corner some big boulders in the water grabbed my attention and I knew I'd be trying to make it at least that far!
It was hard to decide what was prettier, the green water, the white boulders, or the crumbly cliff face.
As I got down by the boulders the "trail" started getting a little sketchier, but I was loving the adventure.
Then I got to the rough spots.
I took my time on the wet rocks and circled around the log only to find myself facing this daunting sight.
|pretty steep if you need a rope|
Adventure over! I was not climbing up that slick clay hillside without someone around to pull or push me if needed. Another adventure for another day.
Nothing I discovered on this trail was in any trail description I found so it was great to feel like I was in "uncharted territory". Don't worry, I didn't ruin it for whoever reads this, there was a lot of places to poke around and discover stuff on your own! There was even a little low ceiling "cave" with a sign outside warning about staying out to prevent the spread of white nose syndrome. Who knows what critters normally wander around these parts?
