Therese, This One’s for You

Buffy and Therese sat on top of the bluff, surrounded on three sides by a horseshoe-shaped lake.

 The “road” in is an old railroad bed, with a steep hill on the north and a wetland with a creek running through it on the south.

This was the first view when we reached the pond.

A redbud tree bloomed at the base of the bluff, and the water lilies were starting to fill in areas of the lake.

This shows where we started the climb up to the top. The slope seemed steeper than it looks when we climbed it.

We often saw a pair of turkey vultures perched on the rocks to the right of the redbud tree.

Obviously, we didn’t get near the edge of the bluff.

A horseshoe-shaped outcropping paralleled the bluff.

The whole area was beautiful during every season, especially in the spring when the wildflowers bloomed.

It wasn’t a place to take young kids.

Therese, I hope you enjoyed your hike.
