Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday my daughter and I spent hiking in Zion National Park.  Zion was as majestic as we imagined.  It was nice to see paintbrushes for the first time in years. No spring wildflowers here yet so we didn’t miss anything at home.

It was a great winter.

Thanks to everyone who joined me this winter.  Come back soon. There will be wildflowers.

Nice day on trail.

Best wishes to everyone for an adventurous but safe 2013.  It doesn’t take more than a step outside the door to appreciate simple sights.  Many of the prettiest things in life take place every day.

Thanksgiving all year long

This has been a great year. Thanks to so many clients, teachers, students and friends of all ages. I am spending this month working on proposals and schedules for 2013.  Check the schedule of upcoming events and outdoor teaching for what’s in store.Image

Whew, it’s hot!

There’s nothing like August to bring on the heat.  I spent yesterday scouting a trail on Spruce Mill Brook that included the edge of a cornfield.  The missing piece of this cob suggested a bear was snacking but the surrounding tracks were all white tail deer.  We found a number of cobs deep in the woods where the thief had clearly gone for shade.
