Happy Solstice one and all!
What better way to make the most of the longest day of the year than to spend it out in the glorious sunshine with your favorite person. In total we covered about 4.5 miles over the span of 5 hours (yes, hiking with us involves a lot of stopping and looking and I wouldn't have it any other way)! Along with everything in the slideshow below we also watched or heard peewees, phoebes, scarlet tanagers, blue gray flycatchers, yellowthroats, red-eyed vireo, tiger swallowtail, red admirals flying and darting around.
It's just after 8pm and here I am still sitting in the glorious sun. What an excellent day for all the rains to finally subside.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
