    Yes it was very nice. It's amazing how on a relatively short hike like that, we traverse grassy areas, deep forest cover, bogs, mountain top and lakeshore. The same way that the forest floor can be sandy, rocky or leaf mulch.

    I really enjoyed today's scenic hike with great company. There was something for everyone including a few ticks. Oh well that's hiking! Thanks for posting your pictures Carlota. Thanks for posting the hike John.

    Steamy weather today & unfortunately many ticks were out... We may want to wait til fall to hike some sections of the Falls Lake trail... When the ticks are gone :-) thanks for coming out to hike today.

    Thanks, John, for organizing this. Could you please arrange for the ticks to be elsewhere on our next hike?
