I Told You There Would Be More Hiking

Just when I thought that hiking season was over, Mother Nature decided to bless us with the most beautiful November weather this weekend. Saturday it was sunny and 70 degrees. Perfect hiking weather! We headed back over the river and through the woods to Clifty Falls State Park. Most of the leaves have turned crunchy and brown and fallen from the trees. Brown pretty much describes the scenery. We hiked the Trail 7 loop and saw two amazing deer. Apparently it's mating season... We also hiked "part" of Trail 8. Maybe next spring we will hike all 9 miles of it... We ate our picnic lunch in the tiny town of Madison, sitting on a bench and watching the Ohio river flow by. It really was a beautiful day. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy. The falls are very small this time of year, so you have to look closely to see the water dripping off the rocks.

There you have it. I'm going out on a limb and saying that that was our last hike of the year. Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around a the corner. We have things to do. I'm just saying. Who knows, next weekend I just might be showing you more hiking pictures....
Hope you had a beautiful weekend too.
