The weekend greeted us with blue skies and a new trail to explore.  The winding four mile trail led us through woods slowly awakening from the winter slumber and animals taking a peek at their visitors.  One section of the trail offered a wonderful view of a lake and a chance to watch the sandhill cranes.  All shots were taken from the trail, since the only downside of this trail is that it runs through a rattlesnake habitat and thankfully they have not yet emerged this spring (that’s what I was telling myself every step of the way).
