We went up and down along the trail as it became more green and piney. It was
noticeably less green than in the winter, though, even at this cusp of hot weather time.
Finally, after 6 miles, and a lot of runners making their way back from the Hatchery,
we reached the spring. We crossed the log bridge and collapsed on the other side, happy
to have a break to eat and enjoy the abundance of running water.
After a sufficient rest, we started back down the Horton Trail, which was surprisingly empty.
We took opportunities to enjoy the waterfalls and bubbling creek noises and made it back
to the cars around 2 PM.
