Minto Brown Island

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago - we've been walking... A LOT! One of our favorite places to go is Minto Brown Island. This large, 898.9 acre natural park includes open and wooded areas with many trails for walking, jogging, and biking. We love it because there are so many trails to walk on - and always something to see. Today we took our camera. Here are some interesting views from our 3.5 mile tour.

We discovered this old car off one of the roads last week. It's the reason we took the camera with us today. It's been stripped clean - and we have no idea how long it's been there. But, it was certainly an interesting photo op.

Some beautiful berries and plants along the way. We love to stop and pick a few berries during our walks. They are SO delicious, especially when they've been warmed by the sun!

Richard - early on during our walk. Still refreshed and smiling!
An inviting bench along one of the paths. We didn't take advantage of it today.
We already saw a new path today that we plan to take tomorrow morning. We're walking about 5 times per week. Usually about 45 - 60 minutes per outing. Minto Brown park closes over the winter and into early spring. What in the world are we going to do during those long months!

Our favorite park by far. We really enjoy our little walks. Every time we do a different walk. Today was special with my Princess.
