Our beautiful weekend weather inspired Brad to suggest we go for a long awaited hike. A sunrise hike that we've talked about doing for years.
Another weekend, another hike. Yippeee!!! I am on a roll and love it! First Kickapoo Valley Reserve, then Pewits Nest and now a hike to Ferry's Bluff!!
Sun comes up later these days, around 7:30am. Weather was predicted to be clear. Past plans have fallen through. We won't get rained out this time.
The previous trail with steep steps was taken out this Spring. A new trail with no steps was created. I was curious to hike the new trail and excited for Brad to experience the beautiful lookout for the first time.
trail up was still a heart pumper
Pretty sure there were extra activities going on ;) There is typically a sensible one in a party group. He cautioned the guy who was standing way too close to the edge not paying attention, and surrounded by fog. They joked how the dare devil (or dumb, not sure which) guy would survive the fall. No way. It is a 200 foot drop straight down into what is a very shallow river right now.
this river fog wasn't going to clear anytime soon

even the view from the parking area was pretty
