|Lots of markers to read along the nature path.|
In one place along the trail, nature's garbage men were busy decomposing a fallen tree which had disintegrated into sawdust. When Jamie and I did the pre-school Nature Detectives at Huntley Meadows I always wanted to do a program on the decomposers, but we never got around to it. Something on my bucket list I'll probably never do, but I can talk about it with my grandkids.
Some of the trees had the strangest deformities. I wonder what causes that. We also saw one that had three trees growing so close together they were like Siamese triplets. We ended our walk at the nature center which has some fascinating displays including one about the fur trappers with an exhibit of different pelts. I sat in the canoe on display and imagined what it was like to paddle around Lake Michigan two hundred years ago.
