Despite the spiderwebs and spiders in my FACE it was great!!  Sometimes I wish I have a great dane instead of a cocker spaniel.  All my dog can do is disturb grasshoppers. 

The trail was nice!  It was a little over grown in spots but easy to trudge through.  Great hike through the woods!  I did not expect the bodies of water though and I have to say, that was a great treat.  There was a gentleman fishing on the side.  It was so nice and peaceful I had to stop for a minute and soak in the scene.  (brady also had to swim!)

There was a point, around marker 53, I was wondering if it was ever going to end and just as quickly as I thought that I heard the familiar sound of ball hitting bat from the baseball diamond not far from the trailhead.  I knew I was getting close!
