On to Erie Bluffs State Park. A while ago, while doing a search for hiking trails in the area I found this park. I've been wanting to go and check it out and finally decided to go for it. I didn't explore as much as I would have liked but I think if I had someone else there I would be braver. I kept imagining myself getting lost in the endless trails.
Just a few from the day and then more tomorrow.
This was just after I left the parking lot. I had no idea what was in store and at this point, I thought it didn't look like it was going to be all that great. I was wrong.
The scenery alone was enough to make it worth the trip. This is only 12 miles from my house. I thought for a while that I was going to be really hot if I had to keep walking out in the sun but eventually I got to the wooded areas.
This isn't a trail but I was standing on one looking into the woods. It's really very peaceful.
I headed down a hill as I was going through the woods and when I turned around it occurred to me that when you walk down a hill, you eventually must walk back up.
