We met up with our friends for an afternoon hike on the Eno River. The weather could not have been any better. Absolutely perfect.

We took a break to refuel. In the back ground you can see the "sludge".
Ishmael found this little guy.

I love this picture of my little friends.
Linda was brave and held this guy for his close up. eeeewwwww!
Most people enjoy the suspended bridge. I however have bridgeaphobia.
