To celebrate Earth Day yesterday, Kermit and I took a walk in the woods across the street from my parents house. Well, I walked - Kermit bounded and leaped and sprinted! He was SO ecstatic to be in the woods, it was adorable.
I took my camera with me and snapped a lot of photos - some of places that have been special to me since I was quite young, some of interesting finds in the woods and some just of "nature". I was lucky enough to grow up immersed in the natural surroundings and "the woods" was one of our favorite places to be. We played there for hours every day. "The Stream" was a big draw, we had "Table rock" and we were always cautious to avoid "the ant hill" which is really a giant mound of rocks that red ants took over and built a fortress in. I will never forget the day that my brother and I went on the ant hill and ran back to the house with hundreds of ants crawling all over us and biting us...it was not pleasant.
One of our finds was a deer skull. Well, I found it - Kermit was lost in scent land and walked right by it! But after I found it, he found it. I posted more photos on my Flickr page, including the slightly disturbing, "Kermit discovers the skull" photos :)
