This morning, the weather was so beautiful and the temperatures were 77ºF (25ºC). After Katelynn and Sara were on their way to school, I got dressed and packed my backpack for a small hike at the Shoreline Trail. When I arrived, a Painted Bunting welcomed me at the trail head. It sang a beautiful song to its mate. It was humid. But taking a short break in the shade and the wind blowing, helped a lot. The Prairie looked so beautiful. Butterflies and other insects got attracted by the thistles, prairie coneflower, bee balm, and many more blooms. I watched many more wildlife along the trail, before I hiked back to the car. It felt good visiting the Shoreline Trail. I have to do this more often, again.
