Bayard Conservation Area

Bayard Conservation Area is a nature preserve in Green Cove Springs with about 10 miles worth of trails — all 10 of which we walked yesterday. I’m pretty impressed that we were able to do 10 miles in one sitting (er, walking?), but man. That definitely wore me down, especially given that the entire area consists mostly of pine trees, and pine trees are REALLY not good for shade. There was not a single cloud in the sky all day, and towards the end the only thing that kept me upright was the cool breeze coming off the St. Johns River.
