GREEN GRASS, Y'ALL. We were all beginning to think it wasn't going to happen.
For my birthday today, I found a new hiking trail within walking distance of my place. How blessed am I that I scored this truly gorgeous Spring day for my birthday?!
|I passed by this trail for a couple years and always thought it was on private property. Big sign = public space!|
|Cameras never seem to adequately capture just how steep things are.|
|We even have flowers now in Vermont. YES.|
|Guardian of the Trail...|
|... and he has the battle scars to prove it.|
|Short me, tall trees|
|It's that time of year where you look at the leaves, blink, and look again only to find they've doubled in size|
|I may bend from the forces around me, but I'll always bloom!|
|The end of the hike. From where I'm sitting, 40 is looking pretty damned good.|
