Time in the forest…

Dee and I got to spend a little time on the path less traveled today and reconnected with the woods. While we were there, we visited the Adena Indian mound as well.  

We were able to collect a few downed limbs that will serve well as walking staffs and a handle for Dee’s besom. I’m looking forward to working them.

One thing we noticed is that they’ve added nice trail markers since the last time we were here.

A visit to Hueston Woods

With it being such a beautiful day yesterday, Dee, Kenzie and I headed up to Hueston Woods to do a bit of hiking and try to grab a few geocaches.  We found GC2J9N1, Hail to Tom n JT (and Family) without much trouble, but the other two we looked for weren’t quite as cooperative.

We did enjoy the beautiful trails and captured a few images and some video while we were at it.

Here’s a gallery of images:

Hueston Woods Covered Bridge

It turned out to be a nice day today and I decided to take advantage of it by getting the wing out for a ride.  It was quite nice to let the miles of pavement roll by under the tires.  While I was out I decided I’d make a lap of the road around Acton Lake in Hueston woods and it was while I was on this lap that I remembered that there was a new covered bridge in the park and I decided to find it.   Turns out that the bridge is on the north edge of the park near a back exit for the campgrounds near the intersection of Camden-Germantown Rd.  and Heathrow Rd.

It is definitely an exception to the concept that “they don’t build them like they used to”.  Though built in 2012, this bridge was built using 200 year old covered bridge techniques.  It is beautiful!  Check out the pictures:
