Stimpson Family Preserve
I've been wanting to hike the Stimpson Family Preserve for years, but because dogs are not allowed on the trails there, I just have never gotten around it. Now, since Torrie is still recovering from surgery for an aurel hematoma and not up to walking trails, this was the perfect time for me join friends and hike the Stimpson Preserve.
Tree hugger friend Andy puts his arms around one of the many old growth fir trees we pass by along the trail.
The forest is thick with moss.
Janel and Andy try to count the rings to determine the age of this fallen tree.
The trail takes us around Geneva Pond.
After the hike, we got together for a light dinner with some of my home made black bean hummus with crackers and assorted vegetables.
