Hiking at Salem Lake

   Today (Friday) was the day of our monthly hiking event.  About a dozen of us traveled to Winston-Salem and went on a 5-mile hike around beautiful 365-acre Salem Lake.  Here are some pictures of Salem Lake.  These are from the Trail Link website

   We went about a 1/4 of the way around the lake loop (total of seven miles), and then hiked back.  We all packed a light lunch and after relaxing and eating, we headed back to Salisbury.
  This is one of several hiking excursions that we've made since we started the Outdoor Adventure Club at Rufty-Holmes in the spring.  We've hiked at local parks (Salisbury Community Park & Dan Nicholas Park) and also taken trips to Boone's Cave in Davidson County, NC.
    I'll be posting some other pictures from today's and other hikes soon right here!  So keep posted.

   Our next outing in August will be to scenic Eagle Point Nature Preserve here in Rowan County. We are also talking about other possible trips in future months that may include more hiking, biking, or canoeing.
