My husband and I took a chance this weekend and visited a trail that we thought would be very wet and mushy after the long winter…..but to our surprise it was very nice and had very few wet spots.
There is nothing better than seeing wildlife and individuals out and about coming back to life, shall we say, after being cooped up all winter protected from the snow and cold.
We walked for maybe a bit more than an hour on this trail and we saw and heard so much it was literally music to our ears.
It was so peaceful and such a wonderful relaxing walk. That is until…..I almost stepped on two of these just before heading back to our vehicle.(Pics are courtesy of my husband since I did not hang around to capture the moment)
There is something to be said about a leisurely walk through the woods after a long winter.
****Just in case your all counting since I seem to attrack snakes….the snakes are winning so far this year. I have gone on two spring hikes and have seen 4 snakes total so far. It looks like it may be a stressful year of hiking for me.
