A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Winter Hike

Rick and I decided it would  be a good day to move a little,
so we got on our hiking boots and headed to Quarry hill nature center.

Yesterday was like the frozen tundra of russia,
 today was a beautiful winter afternoon

a great day for a hike

Most of it was a bit challenging for me, because the paths were very icy.
Falling doesn't sound that fun to me so I took my time.

Fireplace in the middle of nowhere
There are a lot of cool things to stop and see along the way 
if you're interested check it out here  History of Quarry hill

This cave used to be open but because of pranksters teenagers (like me)
 they had to be barred off  only to be opened for tours by the staff at QH.
As teenagers we used to make our way to the caves in the dark with only flashlights...
I remember being very frightened, it was spooky but fun at the same time.

Spending time with this guy.... aint nothing better
