For a morning that started out at 28 degrees, it sure did warm up nicely. Here are a dozen pictures of our hike around Alexander’s Ford on April 3rd.. There is such a pretty field there that we were wanting to explore before the warm weather bugs get going. Annie had a blast in the tall grass and got herself tangled in the leash ribbon. Dennis straightened it all out. She sure makes us laugh.
This was a short ride on a new, for us, trail in Fletcher. It is a mixed bag of surfaces from dirt single track to pavement and gravel. It was a good test ride for our GoPro 9. These photos are screen grabs of the footage we made with the new camera. The video is up on our YouTube channel ‘Exploring the Carolinas‘.
It was worth the long drive to experience the suspension bridge over the North Toe River on Saturday.
Walking was challenging as the long narrow stretch of boards and cable undulates as you cross. I missed having something to hold onto, and thoughts of “Indy!” went thru my mind. I’m not sure what Annie was thinking, but she is game for all things, so we did it!
It’s a shame that all the heavy rain we just had turned the river so muddy as it is usually clear and the bottom visible.
The drive was beautiful with lovely farms perched on the hillsides and the road paralleling the river for miles.
