Sunday’s Hike Photos

Last Sunday I went hiking again with some friends at Session Woods Wildlife Management Area in Burlington. I was beat by the time we were finished, the trail itself wasn’t that hard but the walk up the hill to the lookout tower and the walk down to the falls were a killer for me. Especially the walk up from the waterfalls, the falls were about a hundred feet below the trail and they had a crude stairs down the hillside. The stairs were irregularly spaced and the rise between steps was at various heights, making it strenuous climbing back up.

The leaves were just coming out, they were all different shades of green and the maple trees had their red blossoms in bloom. There were scattered wild dogwoods around the pond.

Don’t be fooled by the size of the boulders, the waterfall dropped about twenty feet. The boulders were about fifteen feet high.

The pictures make it well worth the effort of the hike-- these are gorgeous! I especially love the waterfalls. I'm glad you were able to get out.
