This week I was invited to go on Josh and Ivo's usual Saturday morning nature walk. It's at a wildlife refuge near our house, and since I usually use that time to catch up with chores it had been quite a while since I last visited. Ivo had so much he wanted to show me. HIghlights of the tour included the *exact* location where a garter snake had been last week, a small group of coots floating peacefully with their little white bills, and most exciting, a lightening-charred tree. Amazing!
