Hiking at Conagree National Park

I joined the local Hiking group and went with them to Conagree National Park last Saturday. I was so excited....got new shoes, a new waistpack to carry water and snacks and off I went. The path started out with a high boardwalk leading to the dirt trail. Well it was wet and covered with leaves.....so needless to say I found a way to slip and take a pretty hard fall. To my credit I shook it off and kept going. There were several other times when I tried to slip...mostly on the various wooden bridges. Emilia went along and had a blast, she bonded with Kathi a nice lady that carpooled with us up to the location. She became Emilia's new buddy and Emilia hiked most of the time with her. Kathi was so funny talking and singing with Emilia, spining around on the trail to the song. A few times Emilia would exclaim that she was "so tired" and squat on the side of the trail only to jump up and race to the front after a few people passed her. There was a total of 13 people there. One guy brought his new puppy - which everyone had fun playing with. Afterwards a bunch of us went out to eat afterwards. It was a great time with a great bunch.

That is so awesome, Sharon! It sounds like you're having fun on this hiking endeavor. Good for you! I'm glad Emilia is having fun with it too.
I like the Mother's Day picture you put up. You all look so nice! We know a girl here who looks exactly like Emilia, it's uncanny. She's 4 years old, so very similar to when we were all together in Augusta ward. Anyway, every time I see her I think of Emilia.
Keep enjoying that hiking!
