For weeks, I have gone by this field of wildflowers and admired it, but I never had my camera with me. When I noticed the farmer was beginning to cut it (I have a feeling the flowers were being baled along with the tall grass to become food for cattle), I went home and grabbed [...]
It seems like only last week or last month but it has been a lot longer. It has been a year since I paddled my kayak on Lake Yonah.

Last year while visiting western Pennsylvania, I couldn't help but notice the many farms that had been abandoned. Dairy farms were no longer in operation. Many had been owned by Amish families.

It has rained and rained and rained some more. This was our second paddle of the spring season, and we left from the back half of Lake Yonah. I think we all were determined to paddle and be outside. And while I'm just doing short trips, they are helping me see if I'll be able [...]
Needing to make a decision about the future and think I will take the road less traveled!
