skink!






This weekend's cool thing had to be hiking in the Norvin Green State Forest, then going swimming in the Highlands Natural Pool.On our hike, we saw many mushrooms like the one above, rocks filled with quartz, a coyote who ran away, a young snake we believe was a rattler, and this little fellow, an immature skink with a blue tail.

Norvin Green has a nature center and also rents cabins, if you ever decide you want to play Thoreau and live in the woods (the minimum rental period is 3 months).
I will be going back to see the autumn foliage if anyone wants to go.
