Turkey Run State Park Hike - Memorial Day '08

Well today I went with a few friends from church to Turkey Run State Park for a little bit of hiking! We only hiked about 4 miles today, but I was able to see how well I have recovered in the 3 weeks I have been off the AT. I would say I am about 60% healed.

It was different hiking as a day hiker, but actually it was nice! I got to come back home I didn't have to carry a 30# pack. It was a nice day to hike though and had some great company!

Since I am still in the spirit of the AT, I made sure all that hiked with me had trail names. So,
Jennifer was "LJ",
Abby was "A&W",
Lance was "Sweet Action"
Matt B. was "Shutter"
Eric was "Mere Cat"

The spot where shutter is taking a sit down break by the covered bridge is where I've jumped off into the water. Good times!!! I love jumping off of higher spots into water. It's a rush!!!!

And glad you are on the mend.
