Today started with my water supply frozen once again. Managed to get breakfast taken care of and that all important cup of coffee. Decided to do some hiking today and started with a hike up to Hickman Bridge. This is a natural bridge and was only about a mile in. Of course that meant a mile back out again as well so lets call it two miles round trip. If you see any clouds in the sky they were man made. I included one image to show all the jet contrails. These would dissipate into wispy clouds and eventually just haze. Here are some images from that hike.
After finishing that hike I drove over to Chimney Rock. You may remember a photo of it from yesterday. Anyway, I ate an early lunch there and then hit the trail. This trail is a 3.6 mile loop trail. Have to admit I was not sure I would make the full hike, but I did. I was pretty pooped at the end I will tell you. Here are some images from that hike as well. At the end I have included a couple of critter images.
BTW, if you ask me a question in your comments you will have to come back to the blog for my answer. I will try to be better about answering questions.
