Shawnee State Forest - Saturday

Saturday was a beautiful day. It was a little cool at first, but it was bright and clear. We only had 10 miles to the car, and most of the trail was along ridge tops. The creeks were much lower. We saw a turkey and several grouse. We were hearing ruffed grouse drumming during the whole hike. (You can hear the drumming at this Cornell site.) We got back to the car a little after 2:00.

Looks like you had a pretty cool adventure at Shawnee. Did you look for early salamanders in the streams at all? Spring migration has begun down here. Shouldn't be long for you.
