Qualms About Nature

I took my older two kids to a hike last Sunday. It was a refreshing hike.  The trails were challenging in places, but it had plenty of easy intervals that allowed me recover my breath.  I wasn't worried so much about breaking an ankle, but about the "nature" that's around us.  There are signs everywhere that it was also "poisonous" snake habitat.  So, despite my "qualms" about nature, I had lots of fun.  This is my first alphabet Thursday post.

also just one of the numerous "nature will kill you" signs

  1. Wow! Great post for Q ~ not crazy about the posionous snake habitat ~ how do they keep them confined? Great photos ^_^

  2. Yes, a beautiful place, awesome frame! Nice photos.


  3. This looks like a challenging hike!

    I moved from an area where there we no snakes to a part of the country that has rattlesnakes, so I'm trying to learn all I can about dangerous snakes so I can avoid them.

  4. Looks like a beautiful area, but I'm not sure about the poisonous snakes.

  5. Beautiful place and great pictures. Poisonous snakes? Um...not very sure.

  6. quality and very brave welcome to Alphabet Thursday it is a fun place to meet on a Thursday .

  7. I admire your courage. I'm absolutely petrified of snakes, and if I saw that sign, I'd be running quick as lightning the other way. Welcome to the challenge, it's a lot of fun!

  8. what a lovely place for a walk! I'd chance the snakes, just pay attention where you're stepping...

  9. Glad to have you join in on the fun of Alphabe-Thursday! I would have had qualms about the snakes, too!

  10. This is quite a lovely place for a walk!

    I think it's good for kids to be outside!

    And sometimes it even tires them out!

    A realy plus for Moms!
