Trail Blazing

This morning started off getting down and dirty in the tree preserve near TYE Studios.  The goal was to get rid of as many noxious “potato vine” seedlings as possible, but we also cleared a few new trail areas to connect to existing trails.  It’s a very neat little area and one I usually find myself taking macro ground-level shots of (maybe because I’m often crawling around on my hands and knees looking for “potatoes”).

These are more snapshots of the area than proper “photographs.”  The area itself is rather astounding.  There are several habitats in there and we’ve seen all sorts of wildlife.  This time, I found the remains of a wild “snack.”

And finally, I have the best “coworkers” in the world.
