I went on a hike in Shenandoah National Park. I hiked the Jones Run Falls trail. As the name implies, the trail leads to a waterfall. When I went, the waterfall was not that impressive, but the journey was shaded and quite beautiful. There was a tiny stream crossing and large rocks off in the woods and, near the end, you walk along the creek as it flows over rocks and forms pools. I can see this trail being very beautiful in the spring because there were many ferns and small wildflowers.
I saw lots of millipedes. I also saw a squirrel, a black swallowtail butterfly and, on my way back home, saw a wild turkey and several white-tailed deer. When I hike, I use hiking poles. They are helpful for stream crossings and for helping me balance while walking, especially on rocky trails.
