Jake and I like to go walking at our lake and local parks.
Today I invite you join us.
You may want to step into some old shoes as some of the trails are still muddy.
We'll start right on our yard.
These two Mourning Doves were sitting in the trees right on the yard.
Actually the picture was taken from inside the house,through an open window.
We need to drive a few blocks to get to Livingstone Nature Park.
This is a small place and very quiet,so is one of our favorites.
I wonder who might live in this hollow tree.
Further along the trail,we find these blossoms.
They are small but look so pretty.
Once again we need to get into the car,this time we head up to Lake Minniwasta.
This is where the trails are quite muddy from all the recent rains.
One never knows what or who will show up.
This American Mink was probably as surprised to see us as we were to see him.
This animal is not seen very often.
Both Jake and I can't remember when last we saw a live one like this.
You will notice he is on a little bridge.
This is part of the Minniwasta trail.
Some of the spring blossoms are attracting the bees.
This one was so busy gathering nectar,he didn't mind a couple of photographers around.
With shoes coated with mud we are back at the start of the trail.
I hope you enjoyed this short walk and the beauties of nature we got to see.
COME AND SEE THE WORKS OF THE LORD.
