Today was just such a beautiful day, bright sunshine and a temperature of no more than 60 degrees. Perfect weather for a hike. We loaded the car and headed to the Mount Hope Reservoir, five minutes from the house. We took a 4 mile hike around the reservoir through a hardwood forest.
We found some new wildflowers. This is birdfoot trefoil.
We identified this flower as cow vetch. Vetch means "I cling to thee".
Halfway through the hike you cross over a creek and head back on a very steep path.We finally had to carry the babies and the strollers.
There was this very nice little waterfall.

The kids all practiced there fallen down log walking.
We saw a lot of nice looking fungus.
We also found wildlife. What we consider wildlife is anything that moves. Above is a black winged damselfly.
