WW: Outside {Linky}

Do you ever feel really cooped up during the winter time? Maybe in the south people do not. In the midwest it is really a thing. I don't want to go anywhere because it's cold, grey, and windy. Sometimes snowy and icy too.

A few weeks ago Travis convinced all of us that we needed to get out of the house. We went hiking at OPPD Arboretum and Heron Haven Nature Center. Both a small, but do have some walking/hiking you can do.

I did opt to digitally enhance the photo above. Again I'm already sick of colorless grass. It makes me want to see Wyoming - Geyser's once again, in the hot summer of course. 

The boys like any kids do wanted to explore this tunnel. Isaak got a bit freaked out that water would start flowing fast in it, and they wouldn't be able to get out. I think he's been watching too many movies/shows.

He felt better when he was safe. Too good really. The punk kept annoying all of us. Ha! 

This tree begged me, for a photo:

This bark looked a bit like camouflage:

We saw some cattails, which I don't know if I've ever noticed them - except in cartoons.

Do you feel stir crazy during the winter?

I used to HATE winter. Our cattails in MI looked different than these!! Cool. :) I like that you got out and about. It's going to be in the high 40's/low 50's here the next few days and I already feel chilly. Not cooped up though, hurrah! I love living where I do. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE It. :) Your pictures are great. That tree is pretty.

Yes! I definitely go stir crazy in the winter. We want to retire to somewhere where it isn't cold and snowy in the winter. California was a dream last week. We were exploring the redwoods in a light jacket and jeans. One day it was almost 70 degrees. Perfect January temps if you ask me.

I love trees and would have snapped a photo of that one too.

I live in the Midwest so I know what you're talkin' about! I am soooo not a fan of winter. That's a pretty picture of the tree.
