A day off from school today, being Columbus Day. While my almost 17-year-old (birthday coming fast this Thursday!) needs no entertaining, my niece is only 10 years old and can waste away the day on the computer. I asked Sam to show us the cross country trail one family in particular has been building for the use of the high school team.
He ran it twice and joined us while we walked it once. Here are some of the bits of nature we enjoyed right here in a woods in our town.
and pretty nice flowers!
We also saw mushrooms and are researching if we can go back to harvest them safely.
It was good to stretch our legs and although our walking pace was slower than Sam’s, Katie and I enjoyed our time to use our cameras. Come out and see what you can find!
