It was a cold morning with temps in the 40s and the sky was overcast, however we joyfully navigated mud, snow and ice to see a seasonal little waterfall that’s tucked in the woods. The thing is, we hadn’t planned on the snow and ice…or snakes! Even so, nature put on a beautiful show.
Mud season means spring is here, so we’re good.
AND there’s no snow or ice!
We thought it was going to be easy hiking after we made it through the mud.
It ended up being pretty muddy, still.
A convenient bootlace tying station.
Uh oh, looked like some packed snow aka ice ahead. Didn’t seem like too much or too bad.
We continued on. Gingerly.
We could hear the waterfall!
We made it!
Look at all of the mushrooms on the tree!
They continued upward like a fairy stepladder.
The trail seemed clear for the loop back.
Until it wasn’t.
Fallen Nature on white creates earthy art.
Flowers shouldn’t hold a monopoly on spring beauty.
The sun came out!
A little garter snake soaking in wet leaves and sunshine.
