Today Bailey and I took a walk. We drove to a nature trail. It used to be an abandoned railroad track. But now it's a 33-mile trail.
The trail is for horses, bicycles and walkers. Snowmobiles are allowed in winter.
And so we began our 4-mile walk. On this trail you can walk as much or as little as you want. I figured going two miles one way and then walking back would be enough for us today.
We had no idea what this concrete post could be. The holes indicate that something went into them but we could not figure it out.
Often we would stop and just listen. The sound of Baltimore orioles was very clear and I even saw a few.
I liked this old wood wagon that was off the trail. You don't see those any more.
This old telephone pole was hidden by trees and brush. But you can still see it back in there. I wondered if it could have been for a telegraph wire, but most likely not.
I almost stepped on this fellow! He is a Prairie King snake and is harmless. Well, not exactly. He is one of the few snakes that can eat a venomous snake! Snake venom does not bother him.
With all the recent rains, this creek is pretty full.
Bailey heard something.
He started looking intently at the river.
That's what he heard! Some kids kayaking.
Time to go home!
Thanks for stopping by.
