Last night Jay, Hank and I took a hike to a vernal pool we've been keeping our eyes on. We brought a net and bucket and did some muck scooping. We found all sorts of creepy crawlies and even a baby frog (aka tadpole), but no salamanders or fairy shrimp. We're going to go back in a few weeks and see what we can find. I love that we make it a priority to spend a lot of time outdoors. I bet Jay and I spend more time outdoors than 75% of the people in Massachusetts. I love it, especially now that spring has sprung! It reached 70 degrees yesterday!
As we were walking on the trail, I found some hair from a white-tail deer.Of course Hank had to sniff, sniff, sniff it!
