The Color Up High

Each week seems to call for a Nature Day, more than ever.  So, we skip our formal studies and go some place.  The leaves are turning more earnestly now, so we start up high and work our way down, enjoying it all to the very last.  This Wednesday, I took Laurel to see her lake.

Laurel at her lake

We went to the lower boat ramp, which we seldom visit.  It's not as picturesque and the edge of the water is more variable.  It was also very, very sunny and warm!  The children did love it, though, and seemed really integrated in their environment.  Willow and I worked a little on her form in the sand: a five-point star.  Laurel enjoyed running and jumping on some deep tire tracks.

By the woods

Still, a one year-old by the water makes for a nervous mother, so I lured them to the woods with the promise of partridgeberries.  Sure enough, there were plenty anywhere we looked beneath the leaves.  It was a crunchy, tasty walk.  We found teaberries, too.

I drove around to the upper boat ramp, just to see that old familiar view.  Part of the reason we had gone to the other ramp was that the parking area was full of trucks with boat trailers.  They had cleared out a little by the time we came back.  It was such a beautiful day to be on the lake, I bet.

It sure was lovely from the shore.

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.
