Southern Sunny Weekend

Green Mountain Nature Trail - Huntsville, AL - February 2010

Green Mountain Nature Trail - Huntsville, AL - February 2010

Last weekend it snowed on Valentine’s Day.

This weekend the weather was sunny and gorgeous.

On Sunday the high was 68 degrees.

I broke out my summer cargo pants and we took Miley and Howie to the nature trail for an afternoon hike.

The nature trail is always fun-

there’s a huge lake with ducks & geese that walk right up to you…

…a covered bridge…

…and a 2-mile walking trail around the lake.

I took these pictures with my Sony H20. It’s a compact point-and-shoot: a “throw it in my purse just in case I run into Orlando Bloom” camera. I love it for hiking- I mean, the big camera’s great and all- but my favorite lens weighs about 400 lbs. It’s nice to be able to grab the camera out of my pocket real quick- and not have to lug around the entire stock of B&H Photo when we’re out in the middle of the woods and already trying to wrangle two insane canines (yes, I’m talking to you, M&H!).

It has an “Easy” mode, which basically means all I have to do is turn it on and press the button. Ahhh. :)

On Saturday, we lounged. We opened the windows, shared the recliner and watched The Breakfast Club.

And ate spicy nacho popcorn.

How was your weekend?
