EDITED: 9/25 – wow has today been a busy day – I got the camper emptied out and everything put away! Groceries bought, laundry done and put away! I guess I am the energizer bunny. Really when we get home from trips no matter if I am tired or not I just want to get things put away and get back to normal if you know what I mean. Are you all like that – my husband always thinks I am crazy and should just sit and relax but I can’t until I get things put away. I even got the quilting table cleared up and all the new things put away. I will wait though until all these scheduled post are finished before I start to post the quilting things – only a few more scheduled posts from the trip and I will be back to a quilting blog.
I should be able to get back to working on quilts and the sewing machine on Saturday – I have picked up the Pinwheel quilt the last two nights while watching NCIS and Criminal Minds and have gotten a few more blocks quilted. I really want to get that one done. So back to the scheduled post concluding our stay at Copper Falls and the beautiful trail we took
There was just so much to see that I will end it with this post and hope I covered everything! It was all just so pretty.
I’m honestly not sure if these were the last steps! I should have counted them but I have a feeling I would have lost track!
I love how the water came over this area and you could see the brown tinge of the tannin that dyes the water – it is from the tannin in the trees (downfall) it had such a sparkle to it.
The way the sun shinned on this one it gave it a red look.
Nearly to the end of the trail and as I am walking I glance down and see this very thin piece of black – what appeared to be a ribbon – I kept walking then back tracked and looked closer – sure enough it was a snake! and a yellow band of color around its neck. I just looked it up – it is a Northern Ring-Necked Snake. It was about 9 to 12 inches long and thinner than my little finger which is thin. I had never seen one like this – it is harmless – you could tell too as it didn’t want to move at all and we were able to get photos of it.
And then just around the corner (we were nearly finished the with the trail) we saw this huge wasp nest in a tree quite a distance from us, zoom lens used.
Good bye trails – it sure was a beautiful place to visit.
Now after all that I think we deserve a cookie break – next post
