Among the ancient trees

Ten lovely people joined us for Saturday's nature walk. We moseyed along through the Old Forest listening to the multitude of birds singing far above our heads, admiring the technicolor fungi on rotting logs, and trying to get a good look at the skinks that kept hustling out of sight.

Our next hike is scheduled for 10:00am on Saturday, June 14, so mark your calendars.

The woods were green and peaceful, as always, and made for a stark contrast with the Teton Trek construction site. There's really no need to send cameras to Mars; we have the Memphis Zoo's bulldozers to replicate those images right here in our backyard.

But let's close on a more positive note -- the pawpaw trees are fruiting!
