Whew it was a steamy one today but we had 13 hikers for the hike at Gold Branch today who were motivated to sweat.  As promised, we did four climbs to the ridgeline and the group kept together as we criss crossed the park.  The best way to describe the hike today was an animal extravaganza with sightings of blue herons, egrets, ducks, turtles, chipmunks, squirrels, a young buck and even a sighting of bear scat on the trail (although no actually bear sightings). 

As we reached the parking lot at the end of our hike we ran into our dear friend Dan C who was  out at Gold Branch trying to get a few miles in on his own before it got too hot.  All in all, a great way to spend the morning.  ~  Holt
