Regular readers know that we have been exploring the Airline Rail Trail over the last few months. If the weather is nice, I try to get on the trail twice a week. It is a stone's throw from my house and the south section of the trail is about 20 miles long. There are several entry points that make it very interesting. We do between 2 and 6 miles at a time. We went yesterday and the quality of the sunlight was stunning the entire walk.
Walking the trail with the kids has been such a great experience. We sing songs, recite nursery rhymes, point our birds, and play "I Spy" the entire way.
After 4 miles, 1 snapping turtle, 3 red-winged blackbirds, 1 Great Blue Heron, and one deer that I thought was real that turned out to be a decoy, I was ready to call it in and head for home.
