March 24. A chilly morning became a balmy day as 24 hikers headed into Texas Schoolhouse State Forest. We usually ski and snowshoe these woods, and in fact there were still patches of snow and ice on the seasonal roads and trails, but the warm sunshine was rapidly softening and reducing them. We ate lunch in a sunny spot before heading back, well satisfied by this first hike of spring. Photographs 4 (Bridge), 5 (Linda) and 6 (Stream) taken by Norma Lee Havens.
