Dining al la Cart

We're having a streak of unusually mild December weather so take advantage of it.  You never know what you'll find.

Like this guy, out enjoying an early dinner on the 3rd Hole at Oak Lane Golf Course.  I decided to walk 9 holes after getting our Christmas Tree and this Red Tailed Hawk was polishing off a squirrel and allowed me to play through without any problems.  With this weather the animals are still all out and the leaves are down so you can enjoy the outdoors in unexpected ways.

We got our tree this year at Jones Farm.  There were some beautiful overlooks of the White Hills.  These are good examples of private properties that encourage walking, just please buy something and support your local farms.  Helpful Trail Tip: go early.

There was this really cool carving from the Civil War era in the wreath barn back at the yard.  I hadn't seen it before.  It's folk art of cutting the family tree, or possibly an early trail work party?

Our next work party is Dec. 12th at the Turkey Trot Trail & RecPath - come out and join us if you have time and maybe you'll see something interesting.


  1. That hawk would look good perched atop your Christmas tree!!

  2. Maybe we'll see some wildlife tomorrow.
