5/14/2018: Pandapas Pond, Jefferson National Forest (10 miles)

From my front door, one mile up Brush Mountain Rd. through my neighborhood before turning onto Forest Service Road P188-2 (which become Horse Nettle Trail), down Snake Root Trail to Poverty Creek Trail (passing by where we ended our family hike the day before), around the pond and back up the other side of Horse Nettle to the forest service road and then to Brush Mountain Rd. and home.  Saw a bear climbing up a tree off of Snake Root Trail.


Mother’s Day hike the day before (5/13/2018), just off Poverty Creek Trail on my usual 10-mile running loop.
