Today, my family took our first hike of the season and it was wonderful. It was cloudy as we started out, but as we hiked through the woods behind our house, the sun came out and kept us warm. Calder insisted on being in the lead and I lagged behind, taking shots of this or that along the path. Brian and the boys would scout out things ahead and point them out to me as I caught up. A "new" kind of flower, some deer prints. Here are a few of the shots I took along the way. It was wonderful to see spring green emerging and some of the woodsy flowers coming up for air. A perfect way to be with my family this afternoon.
