My friend, Tiffany, took us hiking to White Oak Sinks last week.  We had never been, and it was quite a treat.
We saw some of the first wildflowers of the spring. Sharp-lobed Hepatica

The rattlesnake plantain wasn't blooming yet, but the leaves are always pretty.

We saw a few other little critters.

  1. I love the one of Elowen peeling her own egg.

  2. She peeled it very neatly into the bag and then dumped the whole bag out all over the ground, so we had lots of tiny eggshells and egg particles to pick up!
