I have been trying to take Wyle on a hike once a week since the weather has improved. There are lots of nice trails near the house, and we tried a new one a couple of weeks ago called the Salamander Trail. It was lined with these beautiful yellow flowers and even though the trail parallels a busy road, it was a really lovely hike. Though a word of warning: if you lay down in the flowers to take photos, beware of ticks. This area is really infested with them and I got a couple of nasty bites. I really hate them, too; they take months and months to go away and itch like crazy.
