Recent Activites Include: two hikes, same time, same place, different day

I got email recently about a bonus hike for the Thursday group I hiked with back in the fall. Cool! It was Thursday (yesterday) at Anderson/Bulette town conservation land. Parked at the church at 10 a.m., was out in the woods until noon. Today, I started my Friday hike with a different group (some overlap with the previous Thursday group, and still led by T. from Conservation here in town). Parked at the church at 10 a.m., was out in the woods until 11:30, so a little shorter.

I wore my ice bugs both times, and was glad to do so. We did a little bit more off the trail today and got to walk across a red oak swamp that was frozen and super cool. Parts of the ice were transparent, so you could see layers of leaves and things underneath. And the little rocks in the swamp had all kinds of stuff growing on them that made them look like little fairy islands.

It's good to be back in the woods again. R. and I tried last week on Great Hill, but I didn't have the ice bugs on and it was way, way too slippery.

ETA: I finally put the photos on flickr.
