Stevens Suspension Bridge to Beebe Lake, Forest Home
Tiger forgot to bring her camera, so we don’t have any official photos for this hike. You can see Jack V’s nature shots here, plus several shots of the hikers.

Our new route brought us to a long stretch of plank boardwalk — a number of the planks were missing and some had holes in them where you could easily break an ankle — made for some tense moments — but it was fun, in a way
