Seeing as how by the end of the month I forget many of the details of each hike, perhaps a weekly recap would be better.
This is an amazing time to be out in the woods, just remember your mosquito spray!
August 6th - Walton Woods
August 7th - The Wilderness Center
Ah, the Wilderness Center - one of the many places I so enjoy being but rarely get to. Noah and I took part of some volunteer opportunities the past couple of weeks, so since Tuesday was so nice we decided to finally take a stroll around. We did a 'sampling' of trails, and even though we walked maybe 3/4mile, we saw so many great things. The prairie was full of blooms, butterflies, and insects. The forest was full of ferns, flowers, and summer scents. The ponds were active with dragonflies, butterflies, and looking into the water a whole other world alive.
This place is so incredibly special, I need to make a point to get there more often!
August 7th - Kenwood Trail WMP
Pardon the poor quality of photos - after a meeting I took a quick stroll at the new
Kenwood section of Wooster Memorial Park - it's a great easy trail for when you want to get outside but don't have a lot of time and don't want to get too dirty or sweaty. Now that it's officially open, I highly recommend checking it out! ADA friendly!
