Another beautiful day. Trying to get the garden started and not wanting to spend a lot of time driving we went to this nearby spot.
We started out up Taylor Rd/ old rail bed but Kelley wanted to take the first side trail- she knows there is a pond near the start. We were going to continue on that trail up to the hill but it was closed for the ground nesting birds until the end of July so we took the left fork back to the road. I had never before noticed this memorial in a field- nothing else nearby.
We continued on and took the little spur to Pine Pond

We walked around the pond and Kelley got some water time.
We then took the wooded part of the old rail bed
to the section the beavers have flooded
Kelley was happy with that
We then did a loop through the woods and back to the road and the ponds.
and in a smaller pond next to it
Then near the end our first wildflowers of this year
Beautiful day to be outside. Kelley seemed to do well and, of course, there was all that water. 2 hours
