On Saturday morning the weather was so nice (low humidity) we decided it would be fun to go on a hike. We went to Reed Bingham State Park, which is about an hour north in Adel, Georgia
"Do these walking sticks make me look fat" I couldn't help myself. Note the old school flip phone. He's so retro.
Your "brave" blogger posting a selfie without make-up! Stop the presses! Alright, get over it, it's a hike and it's hot. I'm wearing a hat I made years ago and an Audrey Hepburn t-shirt I got at the by the pound store for probably a quarter.
South Georgia is pretty much a swamp. The park has a lot of trails that go through the swampy parts.
The swampy part. The water is pretty low this summer, otherwise it would be around waist high.
So, in order to use the trails in the summer, there are a lot of boardwalks. The boardwalks make it so 100% of the park can be used. I don't know about you, but I'm not slogging through waist deep swamp water.
Not sure but I think these are honeysuckle and hibiscus
Weird fungus growing on some trees.
A thick forest canopy of 5-6 different kinds of tress.
The Little River which runs through the park
The Doctor standing on a boat ramp. The river is used for kayaking, fishing and general boating.
We ran into some wild life. A pretty butterfly
and a spider in the sky. No gators, which is a good thing.
A pond with lily pads (and no gators)
Creepy looking dead tree.
Palmetto palms. If you've ever eaten hearts of palm, you ate the roots of this plant.
It was nice to be able to get out into nature. Later on Saturday evening, the humidity came back and the heat index went up to 102! At 8:30pm! Yeah, to living in a swamp!
