Mother's Day hike

May 8th, 2016 at 07:21 pm

After all the rainy weather of the past week, the sun came out around 1 p.m.

Perfect timing. I sold another $28 worth of perennials and was ready for my hike at the Audubon Bent of the River.

A red-crowned sparrow greeted me in the parking lot:

I decided to head for the Cascade Trail as it promised a small waterfall.

There were small boardwalks like this one as I traversed a small brook at the bottom of the waterfall.

As I got deeper into the woods and headed upward in an s-shaped curve, the trail narrowed and became more indistinct.

The lovely Cascades..

After all the rain we had this past week, everything was draped in lichens and mosses.

The loop back was a quiet woodland...

...followed by one more boardwalk that meandered alongside the riverbanks where I saw swallows nesting in the sandy bank.
