I monitor 146.520 and DMR SOTA (973), track me on the trail HERE or APRS.
On the drive down we saw several small groups of deer and some baby deer as well. In addition, we came across some large wild turkey hens and further down the road there were some tom turkey. We stopped pretty close to the toms and watched them for a moment. Dale was running my camera most of the time. We got pictures of all the wildlife except for the toms, I think they were too close.

I took my usual radio loadout but the trek was
really to look at the fall colors and WOW, WOW, WOW, it didn’t disappoint. Fall came a bit early this year and it’s a
good thing because I’m leaving this weekend.
It’s almost like they popped overnight.
The first two miles of the trail are lined with oak and aspen that are
changing color. I snapped a lot of
pictures and I’ll put the best in here.

The trail brings you up the north side ofa small mountain just to the west of the destination and it provided some nice views. It’s fairly easy hike of ~1.3 miles with a total gain of 486 feet.
