Scene: A bunch of twenty somethings hanging out on the rocks, taking turns jumping. Young men showing their bravery, wooing the ladies below with their courage.
Young man #1, pointing at the 40 somethings: "Look! Old people!"
Young man #2: "Do you think they are lost? Maybe we should help them find their way back to the road."
Young man #1: "No, they have cameras. I think they are taking pictures of us. Weirdos."
Young man #2: "GET A LIFE, old folks!" he yells before taking a mighty leap into the lake below.
Yep, pretty mortifying. So we skipped it. It's okay, though, because this park has 7 miles of trails that proved to be quite beautiful.
The trails run around the lake and over pink granite.
It was such a pretty day. We shared the trails with several other hikers, some with their dogs, but it never seemed crowded.
I believe we might have seen Coots at every park we have visited. Surprised it's not the state bird.
Would I go back? Sure. But we have so many more on our list to see first.
