A Hike in the Park
Friday, April 22, 2016
At the invitation of a fellow Sparker, I walked on a wooded trail and photographed the hike. The park is less than 3 miles from our house and is a favorite for many reasons.
The trails are well cleared and much softer underfoot than concrete or asphalt.
The may-apples are just an example of the many plants that are found in the wooded ares.
There are open areas as well as wooded areas.
The trees are lovely when they bloom.
There are fields for soccer and baseball/softball/kickball.
There are bridges and benches. The little sign on the left side of the bridge says no biking. That's because....
there's a paved bike path that goes for miles.
More pretty trees and...
me, the happy hiker! There are also streams to cross and play in. Thank you for joining me at Shank Park!
