Gainesville Hawthorne State Trail

Gary requested something short, sweet, slow, & shady so we agreed on an old familiar start from the dirt lot at Boulware Springs. The hammock was waiting for us and we were reminded of the relaxing we had apparently been enjoying. After the huffing and puffing calmed down and we had passed the Kate's Fish Camp, the Easter bunny was hanging out along the wayside. Plenty of bird songs approached from all sides. Very pleasant riding conditions including not too much other traffic. On our return trip from Hawthorne we spied a small clutch of newly hatched ducklings bumbling in the grass. Later we paused to remove a large limb that was dangling overhead, threatening to fall on the center of the trail. All in all, a made to order ride.
