Mom and I walked around Hilloway park on the weekend. We haven’t been there in several months, and maybe we should not have gone last weekend. It was very wet, with lots of mud, but we decided to just keep walking anyway.
The last time we were there we did notice there were a lot of dead trees. It seems like they are starting to do a lot of work on the trees this spring. Still there are plenty of fallen trees for me to play around on. I enjoy working on my core and balance.
In another part of the woods there were a lot of small pine trees. We don’t know if they are planted there or just got started from the bigger pine trees around the area.
This stump is a real mess. I think it has been here for a long time but I can climb on it and stand on it.
There is one main trail that passes through Hilloway park but there are a lot of small trails people have made that cut through different parts of the woods. Mom and I like to walk on those trails because it is more fun.
Some of the trees have been in the woods for years I think. This pile here is completely covered in moss. Early spring is so ugly around here, at least the bright green moss adds some color to the woods.
Along the main path they seem to be doing the most work removing trees. This pile here is one of those areas. I’m sure we will be back here for a walk later in the year when everything is all cleaned up and green. We always enjoy getting out for walks even when the weather isn’t the best.
