Little Grand Canyon in Shawnee National Forest
As I noted in my last posting, we saw some quite a variety of colorful wildflowers in this park. Pictured below are bluebells.
Pictured above is the creek flowing through the park, looks like the Big Muddy backed up into it after the recent storms. It took us about three hours to hike the loop down into the canyon and back up along Hickory Ridge. Nathan slept through most of the hike. We were fortunate it was a cool day. And what with the abundance of wildflowers in the park, it was a good time of the year to hike this trail. However, it was a bit wet and muddy. I think we did good going through the canyon, all of the mud was on our shoes and not our clothes!
