So we actually did a more adventurous hike than planned. My knee held up fine, but I did take Tylenol for breakfast.
The weather was excellent, keeping temperatures low enough to hike, and the air was clear so visibility was excellent.
Woodpeckers, wild turkey, stella jays, hawks and ducks. We saw a bunny, found a snakeskin and even saw turtles in the pond. A great hike for nature watching.
