North Country Trail Hike

Saturday after the Buffalo River Run we drove out to Rick's cabin to go on an organized hike put on in part by his brother John.  The hike was a 4 mile point to point route on the North Country Trail through an area that John helps maintain. We made it through the trail run without picking up any tics, but we made up for it on the hike.  I lost count of how many I picked off during and after the hike.  After our hike we enjoyed some burgers before heading back to town to cap off our busy day.

The conga line on the trail
Some moss with stuff sticking out on top.  I think that was the technical term.

The blue marks indicate we're on the trail.
Big stuff growing on a tree trunk.  Again I'm using technical terms.

A beaver chewed this tree down, where it chewed was nice an smooth, but where it cracked as it fell over had stuff growing in it.

Looks like the beaver didn't finish this one off.  Quitter.
