Along the trail to Ramsey Cascades

canopy

The hike to Ramsey Cascades and back has served as our excuse for downing a liberal amount of Blue Bell chocolate ice cream (loaded with nuts, marshmallows and brownie bits), followed by a bowl of popcorn while Jason watches his beloved Cowboys.  We’re on vacation, we say, and–we hiked eight miles up and down a mountain.  While we may not receive any sort of award for that effort, it’s a good enough rationalization, no?  Here’s a sampling of our hike:

moss

forest floor

spiders web

snail shell

white moth

rocky trail

(Can you see the trail? It’s over on the right, just past the boulders in the foreground.  A fun and tiring scramble.)

I dubbed this guy, the tree “Scream.”
