    We enjoyed it. Most of the woods along the Aucilla River Sinks area were a comfortable temerature even with long pants and long sleeves on. Passed a diamond-back rattlesnake and a group of armadillos. Led some non-FTA hikers to a good spot to hike and camp along the river, telling them to follow the orange blazes, and ended the outing with a picnic overlooking the Wacissa at Goose Pasture Landing.

    What a wonderful day! The weather was great, the people were delightful and the ticks were, well the ticks were plentiful. We saw sink holes, bridges, snakes, yes a healthy snake, an armadillo, a dead something, some flowers, trees, and did I mention the ticks? It really was a beautiful trip and I've posted pictures on Picasa and also will post some here.

    I just learned that my daughter has a track meet that day which I need to attend. Sounded like a fun hike, though.
