The Trail was built by the Corps of Engineers in 1969. Scout troops and the Sierra Club maintain the trail. Bob and I were surprised to pass three different families of hikers on this Thanksgiving morning. Our legs were tired by the time we returned to the truck. Back home we had the broasted chicken we got at Wal-Mart yesterday and added a salad. We sure needed a bite to eat when we returned. We were surprised to see all of the cabins in the State Park filled up with people. I guess this is a holiday destination. On our way to Cross Timbers there were cars on the golf course parking lot here in the Park. But by the time we returned at 2:30 they were all gone. I guess turkey dinner is served and let the football begin.
We read the paper for a bit. Around 3:30 Bob drove over by the Marina to fish for a while. My feet were still resting from our hike so I stayed here and got my journal pages caught up. I called Mom and said hi. Mark and Michelle and the kids were just arriving so I told her I'd call later in the weekend and talk to both of them. They are having Thanksgiving at Dane and Lori's tomorrow. Carla and Michael weren't home when I called so I'll have to catch them later as well.
Bob's back around 5:45 with wet shoes and pant legs. Fishing wasn't too good so my decision to lounge here is looking like a good one.
It's 5:56 p.m. and 62.2 degrees.
