My hips are still angry with me, so we didn’t do the whole trail, instead making a precise strike on the bluebells, which are on the water-facing segment about two-thirds of the way from the beginning to the Deer Creek Picnic Area. I soared happily up and down the hills by the water, then we looped back through the farm, and the hips were baaaahhd. 🐑 Too flat.
