M is for Merkle Trail

Merkle Trail…this is the one trail at Usery Mountain Regional Park that everyone, no matter what their health or mobile condition is, can do.  :)As you can tell, the paths are wide, smooth, and well maintained – perfect for the older walker/hiker, strollers or wheelchairs.

The lady in the jacket is my mother (and she’s 72 years old)!

The views are lovely, and the half mile hike is a great one when you’re running out of time (the park closes at sundown), getting over a pulled muscle, or just want to take a stroll.  🙂

She had no clue at the time that I was taking her picture! 😉

Sunset – not a particularly lovely one with all the usual colors, but a nice one just the same.

    That looks like a beautiful hike. I may have to try it out before summer hits. 🙂
