Breakneck Ridge in Summer

I wrote about hiking Breakneck in Fall, and about venturing down the blue trail:        The Secrets of the Blue Trail      

I went back this summer! The trails are overflowing with green, but sadly there are also a lot more people hiking. Luckily, they all sort of disappear after the first mile, with many turning back.

Oh how lovely the trail is in summer. Trees filled with leaves, lizards scurrying about, and snakes resting on warm rocks.

Remember that swimming hole and waterfall I discovered during the fall/winter? We swam in it after our long hike! The water is chillingly refreshing, and a lifesaver on a hot summer day.
