We found several large foot prints along the trail, and some very large, fairly fresh poop. It looked like it could be from a bear. I was a little scared. Jeff told me to just keep talking and we would be fine.
I think Jeff was secretly hoping to see the bear, but I sure wasn't!
The dogs had a great time sniffing every single rock, fern, twig, and leaf along the way. I bet they knew if a bear had been around.
The foliage is past its peak, but there are still a few leaves on the trees. I think by next weekend, it will be looking pretty bleak around here.
Here is a slide show from our hike:
