The highlight of our second full day in Hudson, apart from hanging out with most excellent family, was a walk in a wooded area near my cousin’s house. We saw sugar maples and much beauty.

Hudson is blessed with many lovely parks. The trails in this one make for great cross-country skiing in the winter.

Chipmunk! He’s blurry as he wouldn’t sit still!

A tap in a sugar maple missed when they were removed last season.

Very pretty little creek reflects the perfect stillness of the wood.

Not sure what this pretty ground cover is.
