We started with temperatures a about what we expected in the high 40s. After introductions in the Bowmans Island parking lot, we headed toward the Laurel Ridge Trail, we crossed the bridge below Buford Dam and started hiking on the Laurel Ridge Trail. We did enjoy watching the goats graze on the dam, see pictures. A quick stop at Lower Overlook Park to enjoy the views and back around toward the Chattahoochee River. We returned to the parking lot the way we came. From there we planned to follow the river down steam only to discover the trail was closed. Turning inland we hiked inland until it was time to return to the parking lot. By the end of the hike the temperature was as perfect hiking as one could ask.

A special thanks to Jane for joining us for her first hike, Mia for her seventh hike, and Gary for his eight hike.
