Hiking at Dave's Falls

Me and the family when on a little hiking trip this weekend.  Well we walked around a park for a few hours in the afternoon.  We drove to Dave's Falls County Park in Amberg Wisconsin.  The paths were a icy and had snow yet.  What did you expect this is April in Wisconsin.  Don't you just love it?!  I normally don't blog about this sort of thing but I was inspired by the different textures I saw.  I've been inspired and I would love to translate my photos into fiber art.

Incredible texture on the bark of this tree.
