we head out on warm days to look for letterbox clues (and sadly find few) but enjoy the adventures along the way.
There are critters and creeks to explore,
and of course bridges and anything really to climb.
A few days pass and here we are wandering together again; this time somewhere new. But this time we are bundled up tight, despite protests that it's not really that cold, because it is that cold. Snow is heading our way
The salamanders we uncover know this, the birds and critters we no longer see know this and soon...
sooner than soon, we hike with leaves crunching under our feet and snow misting our noses.
Yes, snow is here! Mixing with fallen leaves and pumpkins left out for Thanksgiving.
And while we remember just yesterday walking in Autumn and just last week days where we could (if we are children who hate clothes) get by with just a tee-shirt,
We really couldn't be more thankful.
Wishing you joy and play with whichever of Mother Nature's gifts you are receiving.
Locals- check out the Sycamore Land Trust site for guided hikes called Lil Hikers. We had a great time last weekend exploring one of their many preserves.
