I went over to one of the local parks, Grant Park, to wander the trails. They were a bit muddy, but nothing terrible. The birds were out in force today...three types of woodpeckers, a couple hawks, chickadees, cardinals, creepers and even 2 Kingfishers. That was neat to see, since they are usually very territorial.
Playing in the river to clean my shoes of the mud:
I love the beech trees against the blue sky
Out near the river, someone took to building multiple cairns. There must have been a dozen of these back off the trail...
