Hiking the area

Jim and I took the girls to a hiking spot in the area today.

Ponderlodge, as it was called back in the day, was a golf course and conference center.It was located over a few acres in the area, and when business went bad, it went on the market.Evidently no offer met the sellers’ level, so the state stepped in and turned it into the Cox Hall Creek nature area.

There are three looping trails around Cox Hall creek,and the shadow of where the conference center was. In most of the area, as signs throughout the grounds state, nature was allowed to take its’ course.New pine trees, new cherry trees, new cedar trees-all trees local to the area are growing tall, along with brush for the various animals that now call it home.

It’s a great area for exercise and I am so glad we found it!
