Mushrooms along the Akron Rail Trail

Rail Trail Nature

Sunday was windy, but Sam and I got out for a walk on part of the Akron Rail Trail that goes behind our home.  I decided to take my GoPro Hero4 Silver along with me.  I took a few photos, including the one above, even a video, which I’ll get to in a moment.

First, off, both sides of the have huge swaths of mushrooms covering areas.  It’s been so rainy and damp around here for the past couple of weeks, I’m not surprised to see them!  I like mushrooms, eating the ones you can an photographing the ones you can’t, like the mushrooms in the photos I took here.

The one above are older mushrooms, but here are some that probably are only a few days old.  The photo is a tad blurry, but I like it.

There are also clusters of these beautiful purple wildflowers that are growing along the sides of the trail, too, such as these here.

I always try to photograph them every year, because they are EVERYWHERE there’s a lot of greenery around this time of year.

Sometimes, that GoPro’s wide angle lens get a really good view of the trail, and sometimes includes your husband in a shot.

Now, if you go down the trail towards Ephrata and get to Parkview Heights, you may notice that at the storage unit center, there are some unusual residents…goats!  Here’s a video of them feeding on the tall grass that lines that part of the trail.

The black and white adult is Spot, and the brown and white adult is Honey Bun.  I don’t know what the kids are named yet.  I think those are Spot’s.  Honey Bun’s twin kids are too little to handle the weird weather we’ve been having.  The owners probably have them inside somewhere.

How do I know so much about these goats?  I actually have spoken to their owners.  Nice people!

So, that’s the media from Sunday’s walk.  It was a lovely stroll, though very windy and bit chilly, but it was still nice to get out.
