Friday hike in Eno River Park

I had today off of work so instead of doing something I should be doing, like mowing the lawn before it rains, I went off to Eno River Park and met up with some other folk to go hiking. I even saw a fellow I work with camping there with his son.

This first picture was taken in the latter part of the 5-6 mile hike. It's the Cox Mountain side of the Fews Ford area of Eno River. Spring is definitely started when the green gets this lush. Once the leaves all come in, this part of the trail never gets much sun.


Here's the folk in the group I hiked with chugging up Cox Mountain. It's not a very high mountain, in fact most would call it a hill, but it certainly is steep!


Aren't the turtles cute? Four of them on one small branch and in order of size. How sweet, huh?

I hope to get back to the park in a few weeks to see how much change the leaves coming out will make in my pictures. It's a very pretty park and this next month is the prettiest time of the year there. Late April and all of May is beautiful --- perfect for a picnic lunch by the river. Just watch out for ticks!

Absolutely glorious photos. I adore the turtles. Can't believe you caught that moment. I'm so excited for sunny weather to arrive so I can get out more. (More of a fair-weather hiker, myself)

Hope you have a good weekend.
Netchick sent me :)
