Wendy and I ventured along the Pathfinder Parkway today to locate the plank I bought for the pedestrian bridge over the Caney River. Then we drove an hour north to hike 5 miles round-trip from the west end of the Elk River Trail.
Wendy posed by one of the rock formations to give it scale, and we enjoyed trekking past the various rock walls and above and below the north bluff. A boat passed by along the river and there were some early autumn colors on display. I’m looking forward to more autumn colors on forthcoming hikes.
Thank you for your detailed accounts of hikes, I have been able to follow in your footsteps on many a hike! I’m wondering what kind of GPS you carry or if you carry one at all. I think I need to invest in a hiking GPS and wonder if you could reccommend one.
Thanks! I use the MotionX GPS app on my iPhone to track the hikes; sharing the tracks via email so I can import the .kmz file into Google Earth for fun viewing of the topography against my trail track. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/motionx-gps/id299949744?mt=8
