Sunday afternoon's short long hike

We met Bob & Noreen at noon at the entrance to the preserve....I had found my book with the map so we were going to try & follow the red trail that goes around the outside ridge.

These two pictures gives you an idea of how steep some of the paths are.
Strange looking tree.

One of the three open area it crosses over.

What we didn't realize is the red trail branches off a couple of times & we ended up on the southern rim which, of course, is the more difficult way back.  We climbed up hill for what seemed like hours!  We finally reached this tree only to find out it was the way out to the other parking area.
We continued on & were elated when we saw a sign that said 1.3 miles to go, only to walk for 15 mins & find the next sign said 1.5 miles!!!!

We did get a glimpse of the waterfall & then knew we were almost back.  We finally got back to our cars at a little past 4:00pm so it was quite a hike!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
