Ready for a hike and a little history

Beverly explaining "?"

An old dug well

...a dipping vat

...and a spring

...and us heading on down the road

No, this is not Moccasin Creek, it's a muddy road!

This is Moccasin Creek

..and these are whose feet?

...and these?

...and these?

No feet showing yet

Tony....deciding where to cross

...not sure if this was a good place

Yep, I was right.....NOT a good place!

Either Dorothy is short or the water was deep!

Snack time, which is all the time for Chuck

Carol all wrapped up, hope it keeps her warm

Pat lacing up, one more time

Old home site along the way

Standridge Grave

First sighting of Shop Bluff

The place was huge!

It once sheltered several covered wagons, a blacksmith shop and Indians.

...and yes Spring is just around the corner

Henry makes a discovery

...an ancient crawdad

Us at Shop Bluff and ready for lunch

Beverly trying to decide if we were lost or not!


A pretty fancy looking lunch

Bob and Dorothy


Donna and Bobby

Tony and Chuck

Pointing out the "big" waterfall

..and Brenda getting a "little" shower under the "big" waterfall

"Bob on a Rock"

...a little help is always nice

We would cross several times today

Looks like Chuck has been "snacking" quite a bit !

It was a good hike, lots of history, thanks Beverly.

NO TRUCKS....so we brought VANS
