Nature Walk


I hadn't much thought about it till we took my SIL and family up to The Land, but while she was there she mentioned how surprised she was at all the trees on the property. The acreage is split almost in half; sage and grass with a sprinkling of juniper being the lower half, and the part that is most often in pictures, and the upper half that has the Nature Walk. The shabin and firepit/pad areas being in the middle and taking advantage of the views.

Most of the photos on this blog don't show the upper half.

Come on a little walk with me...



We have the start of our walk.



Cactus Corner.



Rocky Heights.


Most tree-age consists of Pinon, Juniper and...



Scrub oak.


So pretty.

...and we are back, or... at least this is all the shots I am gonna load tonite. Blogger is feeling sluggish and I am sleepy.

So, am I boring you with all the yap yapping about The Land? Because I am aware that I am starting to really get my geek on about it. Dadguy got us some plant and wildflower books and a bird book too. Truly I am a goof about trying to identify all the bits of flora that are about. Nerdy in the extreme, and I just cannot seem to help it.

Nerdy, and passing it on down the line. There are several deer trails on the property, and I know this is so cuz there is plenty of deer poo too. Birdie gleefully informed her sisters that the proper term for wildlife poo is "scat," and now every time Mei has to go number two she hollers, "Mama! I have to go scat!"

I love when you get your nerd on. I hope there is something to be-kickify for stress relief. Don't think it would work on cacti.

Lindsay said...

Oh I love your land. And boy, you learn something new everyday...scat huh? I'll take that over many other words!! :)

Haaaa! I have to go scat! Awesome!
And even though the actual landscape is very different, your descriptions of your land reminds me of the wild, overgrown corners of the properties we lived on in the houses of my childhood. Having that bit of wild for explore-adventures as a kid is one of my favorite things. I bet your kiddos will treasure it for years to come...

Ha! Scat. We get that a lot around here too. Get geeky, girl. Knowing is half the battle.

Love the new set up around here! It looks great.

Hey! Just thinking about your pretty property...we went camping last week and i thought how fun it would be to camp on our OWN. SO COOL for you! Did you know there is a real live drive in movie place not far (relatively ) from your property? We noticed it on our way home. That would be a fun "camping" activity sometime!
