Hmm... I think I sat down about three different times with the intention of writing some long, word filled post about the hike we took last Monday. As you can tell, that did not happen. I suppose this is the universe telling me that I I should let the photos do the talking. I will leave you with a map and a link to learn more about the Wharton State Forest.
I also want to encourage everyone to get out and visit your local state parks more often. Wharton recently suffered a forest fire that destroyed some 1000 acres and some of its hiking trails. It is a reminder that these places are constantly changing, and that we should enjoy them as much as possible.
