Sycamore Falls

On Sunday, we left to go hiking and the sky looked like the picture above. We started on the trail, and turned back after getting drenched.
So today, we drove to one of my very favorite loops in Grundy Forest. We hiked 3.2 miles to Sycamore Falls-pictured above.
We saw rock art..

Tons of mushrooms..
The rain has made the forest moist and humid.

Several wildflowers...
Tick-seed sunflower..

Wild blackberries

Steep sides, roots, and rocks make for a moderate hike for kids.

May-apple flower?
Spectacular swimming spot at Sycamore falls.
Well worth the hike.
