Finally an Outside Walk

This year it seems like winter would never end. I think most of the country has felt that way. Today it got up to 60 degrees and I decided to get outside to walk. I’ve been walking indoors since probably December. I walked up to the track at AU and went around the track several times and then walked home. I walked a total of 3.46 miles! I didn’t think I’d be able to do that much since I haven’t walked outside in so long but I did! I’m very proud of myself. It was absolutely beautiful outside today.

Spring Is Here

Today we took a walk on the Glover Archbold Trail in DC. We were looking for birds but didn’t find too many. All the birds we saw were ones I’ve already photographed in 2014. However, towards the end of our walk I did see an American Goldfinch still in it’s winter plumage. I got several shots. I was so excited to add another bird to the list. I haven’t added a new bird in awhile.
We also saw several deer roaming around digging through the dead leaves looking for anything green to eat. While spring is finally here, not all things have started to turn green. Lots of trees have buds ready to burst open. And of course the daffodils are all out looking pretty. It was in the low 60s today but there was a little breeze that was keeping a little chill on. We enjoyed our walk and look forward to spring continuing to get warmer and warmer. And more flowers and trees turning green!
