|Missy and Roxanne go for a hike.|
We drove to the George Mitchell Nature Preserve, one of my favorite places. The preserve is deep in a thick forest. It has a beautiful hike through the pine trees and hardwoods. Hiking is one of my favorite things to do.

While Mom took this photo of Missy, I was already on the trail. I was ready to go hiking!

While we were hiking, we saw the first sign that spring is on its way... flowers!!!

Then Missy saw a new plant that she had never seen before. It is called a saw palmetto. Palmettos only grows in southern forests from Texas to Florida. Here's a photo of Missy and me in front of a palmetto.

We had a long hike today. It was so much fun!
