Day 65: A Visit to Dragonfly Loop

Thursday
Day off!  Having decided on a plan and with a tentative floor sanding date of late next week, we decided to take the evening off.  We went for a lovely hike out at the Dragonfly Trail.  What we thought was a 45 minute loop was more like an hour and 45 minutes.  But it was great.  It was a wonderful evening and the hike was beautiful.

Beautiful evening to be footloose and fancy free.

About halfway through the hike, we spotted a sizable cave on the other side of a dry river bed. Brian went over to check it out. Sydney followed and upon returning, she brought with her an amazing smell of lavender or some other lovely herbal aroma.

While Brian was investigating the cave, he felt there was an unusually high number of hornets in the air. Turns out there was a hive next to the cave.

View of the sky as we completed our trek - You can see the sliver of the moon in the top left corner. Nice cloud art.
