This past Sunday Pete, Maddie & I went to Pilcher Park for a nice little walk in the woods. I used to go for walks here as a little girl with my dad and sisters (and probably my mom too, but I think more often we went with my dad), so I enjoy going there now with my family. It's a really lovely piece of land situated along Hickory Creek and it includes plenty of hiking trails. We did the "Trail of Oaks" loop which took us through meadows, over creeks and through the forest. A nice easy hike to get us geared up for the Spring.
As a kid, I remember my dad dragging us girls down into these creeks to dam them up (yes, he was a trouble maker, but he was fun). There were these pretty blueish flowers in bloom all over the woods.
And here is a view down Hickory Creek -- what a nice way to spend the afternoon!
