We are very lucky to live near a state park with many trails to hike on and a river next to which we could have our picnics. Friends of the Green River Lake is a group of volunteers who take care of the trails and the lake there. They have been doing a good job of cleaning up the walking trails of all the debris and broken branches left there by Spring storms. We have been seeing more people and families on these hiking trails since all the establishments of entertainment have been closed.
Last weekend, we went on a long hike in the forest there that led to the river. Jacob particularly enjoys seeing the water as he loves interacting with water and has been lamenting that he is missing the ocean. James and he played for a while near the water while David and I sat down on the rock to enjoy the open scenery in front of us. This was an especially picturesque and fragrant trail thanks to the variety of plants and trees as well as flowering wildflower bushes along the walking path. Needless to say, we sniffed the good-smelling air constantly while walking.
