What a Find!

January 10th, 2018

I grew up in the woods, my dad’s family has a cabin on 60 acres in rural Ohio. When we were in the United States, we spend every weekend down there running through the woods, playing in the creek, and dragging home all sorts of bones and skeletons I found in the woods. As an adult, I have spent many hours hiking in the woods in all seasons (and have still been known to pick up skulls I find, most recently a porcupine skull). Winter is one of my favorite times to be in the woods, I snowshoe all winter long. Yesterday, while out on my lunchtime snowshoe, I found an antler shed.

It’s quite an amazing find. I’ve always heard about sheds and have heard of people finding them, but have never found one myself. Amazingly, it was quite close to the house. I’m not quite sure what I’ll do with it, most likely save it and put on the bookshelf.

Were you intrigued with nature as a child? Did you find bones/skeletons interesting?

Friday Favorite: The Last Blizzard

March 24th, 2017

Just when I thought my snowshoeing was over for the year we had a big blizzard hit (last Monday/Tuesday). Out came my snowshoes again and off I went.

I managed to get in a solid week of snowshoeing before the snow started getting to thin on the trails I use. Even though I’m really for spring this year, I was happy to have a final week of one of my favorite winter activities.

What’s something you will miss about the winter when it’s gone?
