Heading to the Woods
A weekend doesn't usually pass without us spending some time in the woods. Last week we headed just a little bit south and found spring bursting forth from the earth. This week we stuck a little closer to home, and well, as you can see, winter is still hanging on. It is amazing what a 20 minute drive can do around here.
Believe it or not, we have not visited this lovely little spot in years, as in 10, maybe 12 years. Crazy, right? I am not sure why we stopped, but I am so glad we decided to head there on Sunday. The trail meanders beside a creek, in and out of meadow and forest, over bridges and back around to where we started. It was a beautiful day, although there is a ton of snow, it was very mild. We traded our winter boots in for our rain boots, left the snow pants at home and enjoyed a lovely afternoon on the trail.
You can bet we will be heading back again, each season will be a surprise for us as we take time to explore this trail a little more this year.
