Hike in Grass Valley-Independence Trail

My Guy and I went on one of our favorite hikes in Grass Valley.
I must warn you that the photos are totally out of order
but I am feeling too lazy to re-arrange them.
During the summer, the is a favorite "cooling off" place.
It is fun watching the kiddies play in this pool area
of the Yuba River.
Kind of creepy.

Love that green, green moss.

Stairs down to the pool area.

Water fall at pool area.

Lovely moss and ferns.

More moss and ferns.

Out of the shady areas and into the sun.

More of the same.

Ferns and rock wall.

One mountain ridge after the other.
Fungus.


And, more fungus.

Love the beautiful blue sky.
If that old tree could talk, I would love to
sit quietly and listen!
Board walk crossing the Yuba River.

Looking down to the Yuba River.

Board walk down to the Yuba River.

Still enjoying the hike?

As, you can tell I love moss and ferns.

Hee-Hee...we are now at the beginning and/or ending.
My Guy and I walked out for an hour and
then turned around and walked back to the beginning.
So, it is both the
beginning and the ending!

Hope you all enjoyed our hike!

Wow - so pretty! Why am I always surprised to see photos where there's no snow? Hmmm... I should take some outdoors and show you what it looks like here. Nope, never mind; it's too cold to stand out there and take pictures.
