ReCharging the Batteries

FTrail 1

I took time out this weekend to do something I love.  On Saturday I woke up before the sun which also happened to be the first cold day of the season in central Florida, a chilly 37 degrees.  I drove about 50 mins to spend 8 hours in the middle of the Osceola National Forest …
