Staunton State Park treasure hunt

Last week we did a little hike in Staunton State Park, this week the answer to the question “Where should we head?” seemed obvious- to Staunton Again, to explore a different trail. What a great hike we had! Hiking listening to the creek running along the trail, finding treasures in the grass, getting caught in the thunderstorm, and running back soaked and giggling, seeing a snake crossing our path all wet and glistening from the rain-wonderful adventure.

and after a wet wet walk back to the car, thunder and lightning providing special effects, we finally made it!

the rain soon ended only to pick up double the force on the highway.
