Blue Spring Discovered
I love to hike. Okay, the trails aren’t as long nor as challenging as they once were so maybe it’s more walking but I still enjoy the thrill of discovery I get when hiking someplace new. True, hundreds, even thousands of feet may have trod the trail before me and many have seen what I’m seeing but this is my first time!!!
Here is an example of what I mean – Blue Spring in the Conecuh National Forest’s Open Pond Recreation Area. I’m told it is a popular swimming hole but, my word, that water is freezing!
Open Pond has miles upon miles of trails winding and looping through the Longleaf pine forest. Blue Spring was my favorite discovery. Doesn’t it look like a giant’s bellybutton?
