Lost Bridge

DSCN1899This past weekend, we went back to one of our first hikes, the Lost Bridge trail by Beaver Lake.  The weather forecast called for rain in the afternoon, so we made an effort to get started early  (ok 9 a.m.) to beat the weather.   I blogged about this hike in January, and it ranked as one of our favorites so far.  This time did not disappoint either!

The dogwood trees were blooming and it was very breezy.  The wind coming off of the lake made it seem like it wasn’t as warm as it really was.  Now that I’ve had the chance to try some more challenging hikes, this one did not seem very difficult at all.  We took the short-cut just before the pond to get home before the storm hit, so we skipped the steepest part of the climb…that may be what has changed my opinion of the difficulty level.
