In my last post I lamented our rainy spring here in the Great Northwest, too much for even the most hardened local. Still, it does make for some delicious shades of green.
Yesterday, there was a break in the weather so we headed to Nolte State Park.
We left the fishermen behind
and took the 1.4 mile walk through the woods around Deep Lake.
The ferns were thick and tall many with fronds still unfurling.
When we got tired the benches invited us to sit and rest
reminding us why we call this place home.
