We forgot our fancy pillows at the cabin. My second hike of the 52 Challenge ended up being in Shawnee National Forest after a pillow rescue mission.
A week after we stayed at the cabin we took another scenic drive past endless cornfields, picked up the forgotten pillows, and went on another hike. Since this would only be a day trip, we stayed close to the area and tried out the Indian Point Trail tucked away off the road before you reach the often crowded Garden of the Gods.
This was a nice trail for the dogs and offered a lot of variety, including some beautiful green-tinged stone walls. A rather short hike but a good second hike for the challenge. As it is, I now have a few to makeup since the weather turned bitter and windy here in the Midwest.
