Greg and I got up and headed to Oaks Bottom. We definitely wanted to walk while it was still cool. We thought the Oaks Bottom 5k would be just perfect.

Once we got halfway down the path, I saw the trail to the left. I’ve always wanted to go that way, but being a girl alone wearing headphones I choose to stay on paved paths that are well traveled. With Greg by my side, we headed that direction and it was really incredible to see this part of the park.

The woods ended and we crossed through this meadow. From here we gained access to the Springwater Corridor at Oaks Park.

So much pollen everywhere! This puff mirrors the clouds in the sky.

The walk ended up longer than we had anticipated, but it was a great change of pace. We even saw 6 blue herons together in a line as we walked along the Springwater Corridor. What a wonderful way to spend the morning.
