Hiking at Hollins

I love that Stan and I arrived at Hollins University before summer term. He's got an exploring nature and there's never time during classes. Recently, we sought out the Tinker Creek Greenway-Hollins Trailhead, which begins behind the barns on campus. What a lovely hike it was!

The trail meandered through fields,

with both flora
and fauna (see the deer?),
with long views,
and lovely benches placed just so for us to enjoy them.

A picnic table was buried in the forest at

And then there was this guy... Anybody know what sort of turtle he is? A snapper?

And we found more Hollins student silliness - this was a peace shrine we stumbled across deep in the woods.

     Truly, Virginia is such a beautiful state. I'm so happy to have this opportunity to explore it and enjoy it!
