Three hours on Grass Trails

The spring wash out in the corner of the corn field is dry as a bone now, as we hope for rain to come soon.

The poison ivy is a danger even in late summer.

And, well, Sweet Pea and I got lost. What was to be a one-hour hike turned out to be TWO.

Early in the morning a spry fawn came prancing toward us, but then stopped and reconsidered its course.

You can click on the sign to read the details of the prairie restoration burn.

Life is persistent. On the edge of the burn, wild flowers flourish.

It was a day made for KITES!

Families of campers enjoyed the dry weekend. These small children rode their bikes down the grassy hill, below the soaring kite.

Sumac is already forecasting autumn.
