Last Saturday Larry took some of our teenaged grandchildren to search in a new place for morel mushrooms. They didn't find any but they did find several other things of interest. These are the photos Haley took of their hike into the woods.
Larry and Clayton take off in one direction, while the girls
went on an adventure of their own.
They found a cave, far down in the woods. Grace went in to check it out and found out she was not alone.
This little fellow was just hanging around, apparently a little sleepy.
The effects of the 2003 ice storm are still visible and still make walking in the woods difficult.
Grace gives an idea of how big this cave was. I wonder who or what else has taken shelter there?
I also wonder if there are fossils in this cave. We often find them in the sandstone around here.
And even though the cave and the bat were the big excitement for the kids, they still took time to notice little things, like the fiddlehead ferns coming up.
