The Nature Trail of Stone Turtle!

Time for a post close to home. Literally. While taking a break from Project (Color) Madness, I found myself strolling along The Stone Turtle's nature trail. It's a pretty awesome feeling to be able to randomly decide to go for a walk and be able to do so without having to drive anywhere or walk on a road or sidewalk. Whether it's the 1-mile version or the full 2-mile walk, there's always something to see. The birds are chirping, the hawks are swooping, and the neighboring cows are grazing.In the summer, the cacti and sunflowers are everywhere. In the winter, the cedars still add a touch of life to the trail. Even when it's the dead of winter, the dried out weeds and wildflowers are still gorgeous!

Did I mention the awesome view from the picnic area?! Okay, enough basking. As, I strolled through the cedars, I came up with idea of a treasure hunt. How cool would it be to have a small treasure hunt set up along the nature trail! So many cool opportunities. Hm, maybe following that blue bird was a good idea after all.
