The local chapter of the Florida Trail Association holds "Thursday Hikes With Dot." They are an excellent opportunity for us to get in some longer training walks in preparation for this year's Camino trek. Recently, we hiked in San Felasco Hammock and went off trail. The first rest was on a log. Later we rested on the karst rocks below Big Otter Ravine.
We have also been hiking at the Devil's Millhopper, at Paynes Prairie Sate Park, and at the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge.
