Laurelwood Park Hike

Near our apartment is a hill that seems like the highest point for miles. Nathaniel and I have tried to find the base of it to hike up in the past, but could never quite find it just by following our map. He googled around, though, and figured out that it’s a public park. Today we spent the afternoon hiking in the park. My heart rate was bumpin as I struggled to climb up the steep hill- but the view from the top was worth all the struggle!

While atop the hill, we noticed a low-flying Red-tailed Hawk. If you zoom in and look carefully, you can see that he was eyeing us as he loomed overhead.

On our way down, Nathaniel almost stepped on this guy, who was newborn and very much alive!
