Nature School :: The Mushroom Place

Frozen push-ups at 9:00 AM and down to Hurricane Campground with a grumpy group. It was a cool 67° F there, so that was a nice change. I know all the coolest places.  It's also the place with some of the best mushrooms.  A thunderstorm the night before made sure of that.  We had to teach Laurel not to pick all the mushrooms.  I think she'll enjoy hearing about her toddler ways when she hears the "Little People" story in grade one.  Willow collected handfuls of turning leaves, as you can see, and Roan has filled the car with rocks, despite my protests.  We all agree that there are times we're not in the mood for Nature School, but we're always glad we went.

Beautiful photos!
Your photographs are stunning! They are always such perfect companions to your writing, you do both so well. I love the statement about you all not being excited about the prospect of Nature School on a given day, but how all agree that it was worth it in the end. There is so much in life to which that applies! I hope you and your family have a lovely weekend. : )

I really love mushrooms of all sorts. It's so much fun to go looking for them after a good rain. We're getting much nicer weather here now, so I hope we'll be back in the woods soon! - Stacey

Me, too. So many and they are all so fun. I hope you all get a good break from the heat!

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
