Oh my what a lot of trail signage! That must mean it's time for, Another Photo Safari! This one I'm calling the Hike of Great Variety. Because there was. A lot of variety I mean.
For example, the day started out kind of wet and foggy. Ours shoes and socks were soaked but the air felt good. The fog was very mysterious but the light wasn't great for photographs. Still, of course, pictures were taken:
But once the fog burned off the sun came out and eventually it was downright warm and we were glad to walk on shady paths. Luckily, the place we chose to hike that day had options. And lovely things to take pictures of.
There were dry areas and wet areas (right now the word "areas" looks so strange to me. does it to you?)
We saw butterflies and dragonflies and spider webs and other bugs that shall remain nameless (mostly coz I'm not sure what they are)
We saw bridges and benches, fence posts and hollow logs and interesting old rusty things
Pretty flowers of course
And of course LOADS of birds
One of the most unusual things we saw this time was a burn area. We are 99.9% sure it was a controlled burn. One side of the trail was blackened and charred, the other side was perfectly fine. Very strange. It had a kind of Twilight Zone feel about it
And a few random things that caught my eye
So there you have it. A little bit of most everything. It felt like multiple hikes instead of one hike of great variety. They say that Variety is the Spice of Life. It certainly does make things more interesting :)
Ya'll have a great weekend!
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
