Boone Fork Trail in the Summer

Boone Fork Trail in the Summer

On the sunny, hot day of July 12, 2020, I took a nice wooded hike on the Boone Fork Trail in Price Park, Watauga County, NC.   

The most notable event was that due to recent rains and abnormally muddy trail, at one steep location I slipped and skinned my shin, knee and forearm. 

On a more positive note I was using a new water bladder and drinking hose system that worked well.  

The trip was good fun, good exercise and I saw many other hikers enjoying the outdoors with me.
