A Walk in the Park: Oxbow Falls

It’s early Spring and everything is alive and fresh in the morning sun. Let’s take a hike. The destination is a small, local park and the goals are bubbling brooks, tumbling waters, a small wildflower called Hepatica (that I often miss because it blooms so early)…. and anything else of interest!

    • Thanks Hien. As I navigated into a ravine in search of undisturbed flowers and ultimately to get an intimate perspective of the falls, I questioned my sanity. But your nice comments validate the journey!
