Checking emails downstairs.
As we enter the woods along the trail, we spot deer!
Companion deer with antlers.
Getting deep into the woods.
The trail crosses several intermittent streams.

We stopped at a bridge over the South Toe River for a selfie.

Continue hiking along trail until we encountered a fallen tree.
Can't go over so must go under!
Crawling under the fallen tree.
Stopped at the end-of-trail bridge for water and a snack.

Notice how clear the river water is.

Rocks carried in my pocket to throw in case we encountered a bear!
Back down the trail at the fallen tree.

Interesting mushroom along the trail.
Blaze painted on trees marked the trail path (see yellow swipe to the left of arrow).
Finally made it out of the woods to the trail start. Notice the heavy 'bear' rocks weighting down my pants pockets!. Luckily didn't have to use them!!
Saw more deer on the road back to the resort.
Evening entertainment....played dominoes at the dining room table!
