Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Devil's Bridge Trail

Well I really just wanted a simpler hike, and the attraction of a new natural
bridge was too strong to avoid.  Cited as easy in the trail guide I was reading,
which is no longer one I will use, it was an easy choice where to hike on
Monday.

The notes mentioned you needed a four wheel vehicle to get to the trail
head.  I think the folks who write these references should all have to start
with a class on some idea of consistency in descriptions.  We have been on ATV
trails that were supposed to be un-navigational for trucks, and now this “truck”
trail that ATV’s were sometimes struggling with.  The reason behind my whining
is that it added a LOT of distance to the hike.  But oh well right?  This was
after all an easy trail so final distance wasn’t a concern.  Apparently I was
born yesterday!  I always wondered.

Back to the trail.  It was an absolutely beautiful hike through trees and
rocks, and the ultimate prize – viewing the natural bridge – was more than worth
it.  So was the sense of accomplishment that always comes from finishing one of
our hikes.

Somewhere along the trail there was an old friend of ours.  We never
encountered her on the trail, but later the same day saw on Facebook they were
there.  That just teases you into the next post so stay tuned.

Meanwhile more amazing photos from my driver…
