In our part of the world, Spring (in name only) is just around the corner. The reality however, can be quite different and I can recall freezing over Easter, and also getting a mild sunburn over the same holiday period (different year of course)!
We currently have no snow on the ground, which makes one think that soon we can “hit” the trails again. Ray just loves to walk trails, probably because of all the new scents… and the treats he gets if he ignores squirrels! We just love taking him on the trails because, not only is he happy, but we get a wonderful break from suburbia.
We get to see a whole new aspect of nature, as all manner of birds are busy in their daily endeavors. Squirrels are scurrying up and down trees, and we are often within sight of (or at least within hearing range) of flowing water. It’s a mini-vacation and, fortunately for us, we have a number of these trails within walking distance, and a wonderful selection of different areas within a 30 minute drive. We’re so spoiled!
