Waterfall Trail Hike At Fuller Farm

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.

We thought it was going to be easy hiking after we made it through the mud.

It ended up being pretty muddy, still.

Uh oh, looked like some packed snow aka ice ahead. Didn’t seem like too much or too bad.

Flowers shouldn’t hold a monopoly on spring beauty.
