Let the Hiking Begin

Today  was the first day of our 2012 hiking season.  it was a glorious day.  39 degrees when I left the house at 6:30 this morning, with the promise of getting much warmer during the day.

It was a beautiful walk:  2.5 miles in to the river with some ascents and descents. 
Lots of boulders, lots of tree roots, and many swampy 
areas that we had to navigate.

When we arrived it was just about high-noon.  
Not the most perfect time for making photographs, 
but definitely the perfect time to eat lunch.

We ate, relaxed and photographed for a little while, then began the trek back.
