I am Back and The Sugar Cane Trail!!

Hey my peeps!! I know! I know it has been a long time. Lets just say, I had to take care of things and I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do with this blog. I have decided I will continue to write it. It will continue to show my herbal and canning things, along with my other loves!

One of those loves is hiking! I have always had a love for outdoors. I like plants, flowers, insects, animals. ( I do like to see them from a SAFE distance. LOL) Well, some insects. I am not real fond of bees, wasps, or hornets. I have always had to keep a safe distance from flying stinging insects and make sure I took my allergy medicine. You see, I have severe allergies! I am allergic to most trees, grasses, flying stinging insects, and well you get the point! I am so allergic to the stinging flying insects that I have to carry an Epi-Pen with me at all times! With all this it has not ever stopped me from loving the outdoors and all the beauty that God created! I stopped really hiking when I became a young adult you know when life started getting in the way. ;) I just celebrated my 42nd birthday in May! With that milestone I decided to go back to one of my loves... Hiking!

Luckily, I have a friend who agreed to go with me on a recent hike on the Sugar Cane Trail about an hour and a half drive from my house. It was a great little trail. But, it was very hot and humid, got to love Louisiana weather! lol! I also made such a rookie mistake. I forgot to spray us down with bug spray. So, lets just say ticks were a problem! Yikes! Oh well, live and learn. ;) Here are some pics from our hike.
























Till next time! Happy Trails!!! ;)
