A couple weeks ago Andrew and I, along with his parents and one of his uncles (his aunt was there for a bit too) hiked around the pasture. The pasture is his grandmother’s land. There are almost 200 acres that in the past have been home to a Christmas tree farm and an apple orchard.
It’s always fun to go walking around in the pasture. You never know what you’ll see. We had a great day for our walk, which was over two hours long.
Andrew wanted to check out the Tamarack Pines. They’re pretty cool trees. But we didn’t get too close to this group because they’re in a swampy area (where they like to grow). They’re in the process of dropping their needles.
We always have a good time walking around the pasture. This time we didn’t take the dogs with us but they also love running around. They’ve seen and chased turkeys and deer. We’ll have to plan a trip back and take the canines with us.
If you want to see other photos from our hike that I uploaded check them out in my Flickr album.
