Yesterday, the boy and i went on an afternoon hike. It's so hard to stay out of the woods when it's this pretty out! i love exploring and looking for new wildflowers and mushroom spots. We Hiked down to the creek with the dogs and visited a couple of my favorite morel spots.
Blood root and bluets are blooming. Trillium is up, but not flowering yet.
i found these brand new morels coming up in one of our spots. They are brand new, the largest one is less than an inch tall. SO i covered them up with leaves, marked the spot and am going to go back and check them again in a few days. The soil temperatures have been warm all week, but it's pretty dry. i think if we were to get a rain shower the morels will start popping up everywhere!
Sequoia wanted to try out his new #Hydrationbackpack by #SunShack. i actually got this for him to use during band camp, as he had mentioned how hot it is and they don't get a lot of water breaks. This one is really lightweight and comfortable. It holds 2L of water, and also has a zippered pocket to hold some small personal items. This will come in really handy during our summer hikes on the AT and also good for bike riding. i always have the kids bring water bottles, and somehow i always end up carrying them all! Now, he'll have no excuses for not carrying his own water.
My boy is very pleased with this SunShack Hydration Backpack available here. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1KLBCW
