A March Hike to Wolf Cave

On Sunday I took my second grandson hiking at McCormick's Creek State Park. It was a beautiful day in the winter woods.
We hiked to Wolf Cave, a hike I have taken many times. 
Fortunately, at least for me, the cave is closed now, with a fence around it, the path diverted. There was no temptation to try to go through it, like in the old days.

This was a much-needed day in the woods for this boy, a day away from school projects and his little sister.
The woods were so gray and bare that even the littlest splashes of green stood out.
The moss on the trees and rocks was a glorious green. 
It is my belief that every boy should have a day in the woods, become familiar with crossing a little stream, have time to clear his mind.
And get a little mud on his shoes.
