On Wednesday morning, we headed up the 2-mile trail to Scout's Lookout, one of the valley's best vantage points overlooking the valley and river below. We had to start early o beat the heat. Off we go!
Too bad this river was only at the beginning of the hike when we were not dying from exposure to the heat!
In the beginning, we walked in the shade, had plenty of water, and spririts were high.
