Hiking the trail itself is quite a workout (I think so at least!) but I like to do it every year. My favorite thing about this forest is how un-busy it is - you can usually feel pretty alone in the woods there. I was also hoping to see the rhodies in bloom, since I missed it last time!
Unfortunately today, although the weather forecast said 20% chance rain - which almost always ends up meaning sunny and gorgeous - it ended up pouring rain once I reached the top, so there wasn't too much to do except come right back down! On the plus side, that ensured it wasn't terribly hot. So it was still a good hike!

|Plenty of slugs hiking (sliding?) the trail today!|
|Some interesting tiny orange stuff!|
|Although Rooster Rock itself is tricky to capture in a picture once you reach it, |
Hen Rock can be seen near Rooster Rock.
|Reward for reaching the top!|
|It started raining hard!|
|A deer sighting!|
|Glad to have made it back!|
