Sunny and warmer this morning that nasty wind had gone away!!!
I got back on the Parkway and the scenery continues to be very lovely!!
I had a plan as to where I wanted to stop and hike but the plan was thwarted when I came upon a detour sign the Parkway was closed!!
So I took the detour but could not figure out how to get to the Park I wanted to go to so I stopped in at a roadside Realty office…the lady there was so nice and when she found out where I was going not only did she give me perfect directions she also told me the best hike to take in the Park and she also told me about another hike about 35 minutes away…people are so nice to me!!!
So I found my way to
The hike was about 4 miles and this is the first sign you see
The trail was a bit steep but very scenic
This was a most unusual formation!! The rock not my pose!!!!
Now for my female viewers you wanted skin!!! Here it is!!
So back to that warning sign!!!!
It has been about two months since I took that tumble in Nova Scotia and I thought today might be a good day for another one!!
So X marks the spot
I must have tripped on something and fell face first into the trail I put my right hand out to protect my face and my right elbow and wrist took most of the fall but I was so upset because I was carrying my camera in my right hand….anyway the camera is still working but I am a little bit battered…some graphic photos!!
The cuts to my elbow are quite deep but I was lucky enough again to get away with what could have been a serious issue.
Thanks to Sara and Heather for their gifts of medical supplies to me I was able to play Doctor Pearson…a little hard to bandage one’s self…but got all cleaned up and apart from a sore finger, shoulder and elbow I am fine!!!
Had a cuppa tea that always helps!!
Then drove about one hour to the next hike at
and I was also back in
I could not believe the change in temperature one hour ago I was hiking in shorts and for this hike back to long pants and sweaters!!
There are supposed to be wild ponies on this trail!!
Another beautiful trail!!
Didn’t see any wild ponies but did see lots of evidence!!
So now I have had supper a shower and feel a little bit beat up so going to watch a movie after i go to MacD’s and post this!!!
I have a short drive tomorrow to the home of a couch surfer where I shall stay one night……life is good!!
