Been a while since we've been to Hickory Run. This trip was a bit rainy, but we still enjoyed time together, relaxing, and sleeping late. Got a nice hike in to Shades of Death Trail, and created a cairn at the small plateu. (Why would someone knock over those already here?). We stayed at the waterside for quite some time, and enjoyed the coolness under the hemlock and mountain laurel greenery.
