15 April 2008 Walking the White Pine Trail
We stopped by a local park to walk the white pine trail. Most of the evergreens here are hemlocks, but this area was a white pine forest and still has a few of the really old white pines. We got started a little late so the bloodroot had already closed for the evening. A short evening out turned into seven miles in the woods, but it was a pleasant walk with a quick stop by a small pool after sunset to watch a few frogs hop in.
