Today we drove up to Norris Lake to take a hike. The lake is pretty and the weather was great.
Our hike is supposed to be about 4 miles and an elevation change of about 680 feet. We did get some good views of the lake and many times we were looking far down a steep hillside to it.
We did see some wildlife, a couple of squirrels and chipmunks. They were fast so it was hard to get a picture.
There were two deer. One was very curious about us and may have had a fawn nearby.
Some of the trail was very steep and at one point had a long series of steps.
Some how I missed taking a picture of "Kerry's Revenge". It was a warning sign that the next section was VERY steep and there were not kidding. You know a trail is steep when you have to walk sideways to keep from slipping.
A BEAR !!! Well, no, but it looked like one from a distance. I think that this tree is in trouble because something like that can not be good.
These flowers were falling from high in the tree tops of the tulip popular trees.
It was a good hike.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
