Well, I got to get out a little bit during the snow storm and very cold temps. I only went one place as it was just to cold. I am ready for spring. Don’t get me wrong I love snow , just not the extreme cold temps. Hope you enjoy!

Another Adventure to Pickle Springs Natural Spring

2 Comments

Pickle Springs Natural Area is a deep, forested gorge consisting of geological formations and plants that are found in few other places. Visitors will find examples of a sandstone glade, talus, forest, savanna, as well as a number of rare species of plants and animals. The area is noted for its blooming wild azalea and wildflowers in the spring. Great after a beautiful snow fall as you see. According to local legend, the area is named after William Pickles, a settler from Illinois who owned the land until he was shot by a band of renegades during the Civil War. Pickle Springs and other area creeks flow into Pickle Creek, which in turn traverses into Hawn State Park.
