Once the weather turns nice in spring, my husband and I make a point to choose a trail to hike every Saturday morning, before the southern heat and humidity over take the day. Usually the goal is to pick a new trail we haven’t visited, but this year the selection is limited to our neighborhood. All of the parks in our county and surrounding counties are closed to promote social distancing.
These pictures were taken at Lake Norman State Park last August. The park is huge, almost 20,000 acres, with miles of trail, lake side picnic spots, and camping. It was our only visit last year, and I’m hoping we’ll be able to explore more this summer.
