From Helen to Bataan

We spent the weekend hiking. While all the hiking was strenous, the worst part was the constant battle with the ticks. The good news is that none of the little bastards ever got dug in. We just found them on us, which is skeevy enough.

I think the total for me was four. Two off of Janet and three off of Susan. Mrs Schwartz had none. Since I always have to walk first, in order to clear the way of potential spider attacks, I get all the little hitchhikers.

We hiked into Anna Ruby Falls, then took the Smith Creek Trail down to Unicoi State Park. Then we went around the lake and hiked up the road to bring us back to our car at the falls Welcome Center.

The Smith Creek Trail is 5 miles. We started at 10:15 and got back to the car at about 2:15. We were all beat.
