Another beautiful day at the cottage….but then again any day here is a beautiful day :)
We started our day with a very long quad ride.
Checked out some new roads and trails…..we did this last weekend as well.
There are so many bush roads and old logging trails..it is easy to get lost, if you're not careful.
Wayne has been in this area before…he said you used to be able to drive on the culvert pipes, which were covered with dirt, but the water washed them away…you can see a bit of one at the edge of the photo.
Here is Wayne's RZR and my quad is behind his.
We got off and did a bit of walking around to enjoy the view of the water.
Wayne cut some brush on one of our regular trails.
I rode along with him, and then got out and did a walk.
These Moccasin Flowers are kind of sparse, so when Joy (my FIL's wife) or I see one, we get a bit excited.
Beauty is all around you here.
Even in the middle of the forest there is beauty, amongst dead fallen trees, beautiful flowers grow.
I saw this mushroom and was surprised on how big it was.
Look at those tiny bites eaten from it :)
When I saw this mushroom, I had a chuckle, as I can just picture a little field mouse sitting on top of the mushroom, nibbling on it, teehee.
Then it was back on the quads for another ride :)
I can not believe how close I got to this bunny.
I also saw a partridge and its babies crossing one of the trails in front of us.
Another bunny actually ran beside my quad as I was driving….too funny.
Here is another old logging trail/road we rode on.
I understand logging and why it is done….but what I don't understand is the waste.
These piles (and they are all over, on many roads) are the waste or the trees that didn't make the cut.
It just makes me sad that these can't be used.
Another wonderful, fun and relaxing time at the cottage….time for a sauna now ;)
Hope you all had a very creative and relaxing day :)
