Today was a little bit mixed up. First we went to work, then walk then within an hour back home. The weather was so amazing that we have decided to work on the cat houses. Finished 6 of them. Few more to go.

Silver creek park short walk again, since we have to be at the shop today. Tommy is at VIR, having fun.

We have just parked the car and headed to Gwynns Falls when a Bald πŸ¦… glided right next to us above the water. I couldn’t take a pic since I was not excepting this and had my iPhone in my pocket. Next time though…..I’ll be ready.

Best location to shoot porcelainberries is Meadowood park. For some reason here they are so much more colorful than at any other place.

We have discovered a tiny parking area – 5 cars max. – to reach Prettyboy Reservoir park from right next to 83 on Mt. Carmel rd. so we are up to a quick walk.

Laurel Sphinx (Sphinx kalmiae)

As you can see our quick morning walk became a 3.17 mile, hour and a half hike thanks to AllTrails false trail listings. I wanted to make a loop but ended up turning back since there was no trail entrance from Bunker Hill rd. and I was uncomfortable walking on a paved road with traffic. See attached map. 😀

Visiting Oregon Ridge park this morning and more specifically the Miner’s trail. Fabulous! I have taken so many pictures of this one mile walk I have decided to post as it’s own trail. Most of the pics didn’t make it in there though.

Magzilla, our AMSTAFF has rescued us in 2017 on a rainy day in May. It was a rough start because we didn’t know anything about him after him walking up on our property. But he has showed us what an amazing person he is and things became happily ever after pretty quick. He is very social, both with people and other pets. He loves his cat sisters and brothers and off course walking.
