Reflecting

We love to hike and take in all things nature has to offer.This weekend we went to the Cincinnati Nature Center in Batavia, OH. Lots and lots of photo ops!


As you can see by the brown water, we have had lots of rain, lots and lots of rain.  Later on in the late spring, early summer it wall clear up and be clear as a bell.  While hiking around this reserve pond we ran into one of the Nature Center Employees.  She explained to us that the pond was built as a 'fire hydrant' if the wood frame main house ever caught fire.  My question was...why did they build it so far way from the house?  It sure would be a long way to carry buckets of water or even a long way for a bucket brigade.

There were lots of big green frogs and a few turtles were swimming on the surface.  It was a beautiful day for a hike with my two favorite hiking buddies.
