Misty Foggy Dawn Hike

I went hiking at dawn this morning. It was misty and very foggy, and a little cool, but above freezing. It was great seeing the creeks up. I only saw one deer today, but there were a lot of birds singing, and I saw I Downy woodpecker. I hear them all the time, but I have never seen them out there. I wish I had more time to hike other trails, but I had already been  out there 3 hours, and I had things to do.

I hiked to the waterfall from the village via the Tanyard trail, which allows you to get to the waterfall without crossing the creek. I went back across the creek, just past the waterfall, where the stepping stones are. Getting to the waterfall on the Tanyard takes longer, and is hilly, but I wanted to get a decent hike in anyway.

Here are a few pictures of the creek and waterfall:

I am not sure what kind of a bone this is, but it has been cleaned pretty good!

I am not sure what got what, but there was a pretty big mess around!

Not much left, just this and the bone.

There was water flowing over some of the stepping stones. I hope the runners had waterproof shoes. My boots are very good for this.

The waterfall is flowing pretty good now, as well as the creek.
