Nan and Walt's 1999 - 2000 Sabbatical

Part IX - Hogsback

I found a map of an area called Hogsback. After we found it on our map, we decided to take a visit. Unfortunately the drive was a bit long each way, 2 1/2 hours, but some of the scenery was interesting, including the monkey Walt spotted sitting on the fence along the road. The Hogsback area was lovely and we had a great lunch, bought some local crafts and did a short hike before it started raining and we started home.

Our hike was to Swallow Tail Falls, about 2 hours round trip. This is a view from the top of the falls. I didn't really see the falls since the hike to a vantage point was quite slippery and steep. Walt took some photos but there were so many trees, at the resolution I use here, you'd never see them.


But, there were several small cascades along the route. How about those hydranga that are growing wild!
