Hike #2 – Alum Cave Trail – 10 strenuous miles (although we figured it was really 11 miles round-trip according to the signs we passed) – 18 bridges crossed and 168 people passed – It’s a popular trail!

Making our way through Arch Rock
Beautiful views along the way
The best-dressed hikers color-coordinate their shoelaces and hairbands!
Alum Cave really isn’t a cave but a bluff
Almost there!
We weren’t expecting to see “civilization” at the top of the mountain!
We made it!!
Resting at the bluff on the way down
and taking a picture looking the other way.
Still smiling!
