The Creek was probably the most fun part of the trail and what made the park spectacular. The life near the water was amazing. We spent most of our time looking at different plants, fungi, fish, and listening for birds. I've posted some pictures of the park looked like and the nature we got to enjoy.

The next two pictures were the birds we got. Neither picture is mine.

The only birds of note were a Black-Throated Warbler and a Blackpoll Warbler. They were surprises as we got to the park very late in the day. The Blackpoll was a particular surprise! We heard the call, saw the legs and the cap and beak. The Break was a good one as driving for hours can be particularly monotonous. We even drove through Damascus, VA which was a welcome change from the typical roadside rest stops. Birding in Dixie will continue soon!
