This wooded 2.5 mile out and back trail at Caesars Creek State Park was fun. Beginning on a ridge, the trail descended to Flat Fork Creek where we crossed a long swinging rope bridge. I enjoyed trying to swing the Orca off the bridge. A short trail leads down to the picturesque waterfalls which were not that tall but you could wade in the creek above or below them. On the way back when walking up the hills I was gasping and could not get my breath. Two days later I was placed for eight days at the Ohio State James Cancer Hospital where I found out I had lost 50% of my lung capacity and had graft vs. host disease in my lungs and a double pneumonia at top of that.
Well it’s 2 ½ months later and my steroid treatment is working. We are back on the trail and even though it is shady the temperature is 88 degrees and humid. I had to test my lung capacity and I feel that I have reclaimed at least 30% of it back so far as I breathed very well hiking up the hills today. God has blessed me again! As for the falls, we had heavy rain two days ago and the falls were briskly flowing.
