A Story of Green

Once upon a time, when it was particularly hot, we decided to hop in the van and run away from the heat for a bit.  We headed up north to one of our favorite hiking/exploring/picnicking spots.  There we found a nice spot of river and the kids waded and swam and splashed.  We reveled in the large amounts of green and foliage that surrounded  us.  I think it was a bit of a shock to our desert systems.  There were ferns and ivy  and big, beautiful trees and flowers and puzzle grass (I love puzzle grass), and ruins and red rocks and stink bugs and bees and bears (although those last two aren't that fun...and we didn't see any bears, thank goodness).


It was beautiful.  The end.

  1. Gotta say, I'm lovin the green. The days in the summer desert make me seriously question the "need" for clothes. Those Aboriginal tribes may be on to something - except the droopy boobs. Even I knew, at a tender age, that if they are near your belly button you should do everyone a favor & put a shirt on...
