We haven’t been hiking or on any trails in a few months, so it was a treat to have a free day this weekend for a hike.
We lucked out with such a gorgeous day of sunshine, mild temperatures, and a light breeze.
It’s fun to see the vegetation that grows along the trail. We saw lots of Queen Anne’s Lace, wild parsnip, and purple thistles. Seeing these wild black-eyed susan flowers made me wish I had planted these in our gardens. They bloom in summer when most of our other perennials are done for the season.
Spending time on the trail is always a good boost for my soul, especially this time of year when my creativity tends to wane a bit.
