Fifty plus years of hiking and it never grows old. There is always something new to learn, something new to see, something new to hear, or simply something that must have been missed the time before. The scenery is ever changing, yet to the unobservant eye it remains the same. This past summer we heard a new bird at night or at least we thought it was a bird. We spent all summer trying to find this baffling noise-maker, but it was very elusive. We hope it returns. Just when you thought you had identified every sound and every creature, a new one shows up. Koppick Knob is a beautiful place to live.
