Write Up:

What started out as a very quiet hike today, ended up with quite an unfortunate bang.  Saw a beautiful heron around the pond, spoted a turtle in the middle of the trail, and as we were entering the later part of the hike, we spotted a copperhead.  We gave Regina a "10" for her jump!  As we were hiking along the river towards the end of her hike, one of our hikers tripped and broke what appears as a couple of knuckles in her hand.  We did get ice on it ASAP and got her to a local hospital where she was taken in rather quickly.  So, an unusual finish to what had started as a normal Thursday morning hike!
