Tuckered out

Date: 10/2/10

Place: Lake Norman State Park (exit 42 off I-77)

Distance: ~40 minutes from Charlotte

We hiked the Lakeshore Trail which looped around the fingers of Lake Norman. It took about 2 hours to traverse the 5 miles of fairly flat trail, with a few slight hills and dips. There’s ample parking and picnic facilities by the parking lot.

Will you check out M's shoes? Do they make those for dogs?

Since the trail followed the lake shore, I was able to run off the trail, forge through the bramble and wade in the water from time to time to cool off. It was like being at the beach and mountains at the same time. Amazing!

Riding the Subi home.

So pooped after a day of swimming, hiking and making friends on the trails at Lake Norman State Park.
