Mapping the western part of the trail

Waterfall and bridge
Starting from the west the trail soon passes over the creek and waterfall via this bridge. Not a bad view!

Coppertone and I walked the western portion of the trail that we had not yet mapped out.  The western path we hiked is all paved and makes for easy walking.

Though not a tough hike by any means we experienced an equipment malfunction that had us making decisions on how to proceed.  Coppertone's boots started to come apart as the soles separated from the boot.  Her boots were old, but we had no warning that they were on their way out.  Halfway through the hike she removed one, then both soles and walked the rest of the way in the boots with no souls (soles).  At times we planned how to have me walk back to the car and pick her up, but she made it all the way back.

Our first stop after the hike was to REI to purchase a new pair of boots.  REI was kind enough to let her wear the boots out of the store.
