Where I Am – Fife to the Paulson Bridge

One of the greatest resource I have at my disposal is the natural environment that surrounds me.  It provides a cool lake as refuge from the summer heat, wood to keep me warm in the winter, food and medicine for little effort, mild winters, plenty of sunshine, and a long growing season.  One of the greatest benefits provided by my natural environment is no shortage of trails to explore and an abundance of stunning landscapes.

This weekend, we explored one of these trails.
