Today was a pretty special day for me. It has been one year since I met my partner in mayhem. We decided to celebrate as I guess many kids do by going on a hike. We went to my favorite hiking spot - Chickies Rock. Unlike other times however we went on a path we had never seen before. Now, this trail is not one I would suggest. I'm pretty much covered in scraps and the boy passed out as soon as we got home. But the memories we have and the pictures I risked life and limb to capture make it all worth it.
|Some pretty fungi. Lots of garlic mustard, already in bloom.|
|We climbed up the rock face.|
|Is that trillium I see?! Or Jack?|
|I guess we'll have to come back to see them in bloom.|
|Jack in the pulpit, and maybe toothwort at the base, next to tiny jewelweed.|
|Massive Skink Cabbage|
|The brave young man checking the drain for trolls.|
