The Hawk’s Cry in Autumn



Hike 30! We did a mix of walk by ourselves and with a group for this one. We returned to Schlitz Audubon Nature Center for a 1.5-mile walk. Even though it’s November, the weather didn’t seem to agree. I think I overdressed the boys. img_9291


It was a lot of fun to splash water, investigate the wigwam and pond, and visit Skywalker, the center’s Hawk. We had been doing a lot of carrier based hikes lately, so it felt really good to have both boys walk.img_9241

Total Mileage: 60.8

Now adrift on the airflow, unfurled, alone,
all that he glimpses—the hills’ lofty, ragged
ridges, the silver stream that threads
quivering like a living bone
of steel, badly notched with rapids,
the townships like strings of beads -Joseph Brodsky
