What did you do on Sunday? Did you wake up at 630 am, have pancakes by 8 and then head out for a nature hike by 9? Get lost by 10 found by 11 and then arrive home exhausted by noon? Sheesh it was a busy morning.
We went over to the Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve for what I thought would be a nice little walk– a small set of very pretty trails a pond and a treehouse lookout. And so it was when we set out for our walk.
A goose followed us for a bit until we got to the pond.
Then we got lost. We turned right at the sign that pointed to VISTA. We saw a utility cut with a sort of view to some houses, but turned down the utility cut looking for what surely must be a better VISTA than that. And we got lost. Way lost. Dense woods, trails, following the utility line. We even turned around at one point–which is always a hard one to do. Then we saw a road ahead. We’re saved! Then we got closer….
The path was washed out and huge ravine loomed! We stood back from the edge, a snake ran over the little girl’s foot down into the gulf. Scary!! What to do?
Ah well, we kept going, found our way out and had a pretty fun adventure all around! Who knew you could have such a great adventure so close to home.
