“Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” -John Muir
I can’t believe it’s already 10 days into Novemeber! We’ve been making sure to take advantage of the beautiful, sunny, crisp autumn days when we have them. I’m thankful to live near the Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve, it’s nice to have close by now that the days are so much shorter. It has a short paved loop trail that is fun for the kids, you can also take a longer walk out in the prairie. We love visiting, seeing how the prairie changes throughout the seasons, this time of year it looks golden after the dry summer.
