The entire TG family took time out to hike, paddle, fish, and swim at Huntsville State Park. We started the first three mornings with 2, 2+, and 3 mile hikes. Nate walked them all, celebrating his 4th birthday. Warm and humid as it was, swimming was the late morning/early afternoon activity of choice. Our time on the water was enjoyed paddling watercraft we personally chose for this adventure. Lake Raven was serene, we owned the swimming area, the paddling was delightful, the fishing was cathartic, the alligators were many, and the livin’ was easy.
