As we had started to do last year, we decided in 2012 to again try to make it to our different nature trails at least once a month. So far we have made it, but then again, it is only February! :)
Surprisingly enough our February walk at the Sutherland Nature Sanctuary (taken on last Wednesday) was almost cooler than our January one. But it was still enjoyable and everything was beautiful.
We made our way through the pine forest, craning our necks to look at the towering pine, and gazing down the awesome path lined with the arbores sentinels that we never get tired looking at.
We followed along the stream, searching for and finding new growth of Skunk Cabbage, then made our way through the owl forest and back to the stream where it curves around and past the old cotton wood tree.

"I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in."
