In the spirit of “love the one you’re with,” we began to appreciate the stunning mature hardwoods along this stretch of trail. This soon led to amorous feelings (on the part of the Limeys – we’re not sure how the trees felt):
Having walked the trail in autumn, winter and spring, we appreciated the lush summer greenery of this section. We were surrounded by cool dappled shade and sweetly rustling leaves throughout the hike.
There had been a violent storm in the area two days prior to our hike and the damage was evident along the trail. It’s a tough life being a tree.
Also featured in the day’s hike were several gorgeous waterfalls.

Once again we were impressed by the quality of workmanship in the structures along the trail. This bridge had solidly-built stone pillars.
