We started in the same parking lot we often do because she had heard me tell of a cool old ruined farmhouse farther down a different branch of the trail than we had done on a few previous trips.

The area is spiderwebbed with trails, and I know we've been all over this area, but apparently hadn't done the one little stretch of main trail that this old building was on (at least not with her).

She wanted to take our good camera (Canon EOS Rebel T3) and take pictures on her own. [All pictures are taken entirely by her except the one she is in]
She very much enjoyed looking for flowers, pretty scenes and interesting plants to take pictures of.

The picture taking time made our 2.9 miles over 1.5 hours a stroll at best, but the point wasn't to put in miles.

We found purple flowers.
And white flowers.
And more white flowers.

On the way back to the car, she asked if we could go out again tomorrow, hike a different trail, and take more pictures. It's a definite possibility...
