Yesterday we got a chance to visit a trail we have heard about from a friend many times and seen some pretty cool photos as well. The weather has always been the kicker so myself and the boys were excited to get a chance to explore here.
I have posted a lot of pictures because I had a hard time choosing what with such wonderful new life on the forest floor and other places!
It was quite a steep trek up but the sound of the rushing water made us want to make it to the top!
Xman was enjoying poking at the soapy froth – it was pretty cool, I have to say.
Here is a bit of it dried up on a stick overhanging the water. So glad that I brought my macro lens along! My camera bag was heavy but it was worth it – and a good workout up the hill. 🙂
A miniature first filled with a life of its own! The boys love seeing the evidence of beetles. It’s not often I get a photo of myself with my boys! Thanks, Dawn! 😉 The walk down was somewhat tricky in spots but hand-holding made it that much easier. I just love the little fiddleheads! Dawn spotted this spotted gall – she has an eye for them – and the oaks. 😉 …and this wing…from a June beetle. Poor dude. Love the droplets! This guy was superbusy and supertiny! and just would not take the time to pose for a portrait. Puddles do not ever go unnoticed – so fun! It’s a whole other world out there that amazes me in so, so many ways. Great beauty and wonder.
I just recently checked out this book from the library. I love love love moss. Can’t wait to read it!
