Field Notes: Summer On the Bike Trail

We have a great bike trail near our house, so it’s become a new routine to go for a long bike ride on Sundays when we’re in town and the weather is nice. We also like to turn it into a field day of identifying all the wildflowers, birds and bugs along the way.

We found milk thistle, wild phlox, pasture rose, ox-eye daisies, common milkweed, golden alexander, queen anne’s lace, a big ole feather, lots of bees, chipmunks, red admiral butterflies, cabbage white butterflies, cardinals and red-winged blackbirds.trail scenic views

It’s always a fun day on the trails! Hope you’re making time to go outside and enjoy summer.

  1. I love that you document your trail findings and share them with us. Your photographs are beautiful.

    1. Thanks Cindy! I like to document our adventures because there are ideas brewing in my head about future sketchbook illustrations. Plus I love to study nature close-up, and I love to take pictures!
