Sunday Jake hit a great milestone. He hiked all the way to Lake Marie and back without having to be carried. That is quite a hike and he did a great job. There were a couple of spots on the way down that were touch and go but he pulled it off. Along the way we had some pretty good finds. Lots of blue bellies, a scorpion, a big ass moth, caterpillars, quite a few varieties of wildflowers, and a big rattle snake.
Big Moth Kenny found sitting in the brush.
Jake’s quick hands caught this adolescent little blue belly.
