Spring has Sprung ...

We took advantage of the weather and headed out on a Spring Nature hike with our home school friends.  We love exploring the USC-Upstate Palmetto Trail!

Small wildflowers were popping up from the leaf litter .  They were so delicate and added little splashes of color to the forest path.

We stumbled upon mating frogs in a muddy pool of water.  They were fascinating to watch! Many had already laid their eggs and the kids enjoyed looking at the sacs.

We found many tracks around the mud pools.  This one is definitely canine and probably a coyote.  We also saw deer tracks and racoon tracks.
