Nature Center Hike

The past few weekends have been so nice outside, we have been hiking at the Nature Center in Springfield to get in some good exercise and be outside! We usually do about 2 1/2 to 3 miles of walking/hiking and we get to see some great wildlife!  Today, was an exceptional day for wildlife and I wanted to share some fantastic pictures! It was a great hike, nice breeze and tons of animals!

There were 3 wild turkeys all calling for the 2 females that were across the water!

This is one of the females

This little guy was trying to get across the gravel walkway, Joe helped him shorten his trip!

Cute little turtles getting some sun!

This is one of my favorite spots on the trail.  Water flows right over the rocks you walk on, it is so serene and beautiful, I just love to watch it!

I love it so much, I wanted our picture in front of it!

This little box turtle was just trying to hang out and enjoy his day, until we came along, we scared him back into his shell...oops!

Even caterpillers were out!

Look closely, deer is in the center of the picture.  He knows where it's safe!

This floating bridge is pretty cool, but no animals were there!

Loved the pink tree, of course! So pretty!!

If it's nice tomorrow, we will probably head out to the Nature Center again! It really is a great place, and we love getting the exercise!
