More time in Shenandoah National Park included flowers, many river crossings and efts, an almost-stepped-upon snake and my first swimming hole plunge of the year. Plus some very tired legs.
The woods smelled so good this morning. Sun warmed earth and fresh air.
In other news, I found a tick attached to me yesterday morning.
I’m guessing I picked it up on my walk in the woods the previous morning. Didn’t know I needed to be checking for ticks in December. Yes, I read that before, but I didn’t take it seriously. I need a mental break from worrying about these damn things. But that is not to be. Now I will wait to see if I get sick. And check for ticks. Every. Freakin’. Time.
The moon sure was pretty this morning, though!
