We met our daughter at the visitor’s center on the old Courthouse Square to register. It has been three years since we walked this event, and she’s never walked it before. The square was ringed with arts/crafts tents. We started out by circling the courthouse square.

We passed through this old cemetery to reach the river.
As we passed by the Blue Hole we saw lots of people enjoying the river swimming area.
We continued on the hike/bike trail along the river.
We crossed the river and walked on the other side, then crossed back again.
I think those were swans.
We headed back toward downtown and passed the new Masonic Lodge.
