I spent another weekend in the Kaintuck Hollow area – this time with a small group from the local Sierra Club’s semi-annual “Backpacking 101” class.
We hiked-in to the natural bridge Friday, set up camp, and explored the watershed feeding the creek flowing through the natural bridge. There are at least three springs. Saturday we hiked the long way to Wilkin’s Spring and then hung-out there watching the geese and muskrats. Wildflowers were abundant – violets, bluets, spring beauty, but also henbit and chickweed, which are just weeds when they’re in my lawn.
Temperatures Saturday AM were pretty brisk but the afternoons were warm and sunny. We saw surprisingly few people.
