I finally get back on the trail! It was very nice. I’m still craving the higher elevations, but this was a good training hike. Apretty steep trail, but only 3 1/2 miles each way. I took a side trip across that horribly wobbly bridge to check out the bat caves, but had no intention of going in. They looked very damp and cold, and I assume must have plenty of bat doo-doo. Not my thing, however, I do love bats. Ever since I heard they eat their weight in mosquitos every night. How could I not love that?

I am having a hell of a time uploading pictures. WordPress keeps somehow melding one photo with the one I’m trying to upload. I give up for now, I don’t have all friggin’ day to do this. I had more photos, but WordPress sucks.
