After the Rain







After the rain storm...

:: Luke found a milkweed pod and wanted to sail it in the puddles.  

:: The first leaves are bursting everywhere.  Just a little bit of warm rain and sun to give them that final push.

:: A fresh track that we're puzzled by.  It's large, about five inches long and looks just like an elk track.  Could it be?  A herd was established in the Chequamegon National Forest, about sixty miles north of us, back in the 90's.  I didn't think elk traveled this far south.

What are you finding in the woods right now?

  1. Oh yes, we know that track well. We live near Mt St. Helens. That will require quite the fence and your dog or two if you want to grow anything to eat.
    I so love seeing your story unfold. Uniquely your own. Your photos, your words, not too much and just enough. Thank you for sharing.
