It was a beautiful bright day on Saturday, so we hit the trail about 5 minutes from our house for a brief hike. We'd walked about 2 hours on these trails a few weeks ago but this time we were out for less than an hour as seasonal allergies were in full swing and making us feel a bit loopy!
I was surprised to see that there was still quite a bit of water flowing from the river in this section. We crossed a branch that was laid across (The boys walked across with ease while I, of course, slipped and got a shoe full of water!)
Last time we walked there were thousands of fuzzy black caterpillars squiggling their way down the trail. This time we saw many more butterflies! The flowers were growing all around, from bright yellow daisies to tiny purple flowers spread across the ground like a carpet.
