Hi All,

I took a nice trip to Rock Meadow on Thursday; I forgot to send it
through. I love it there this time of year, you can close your eyes in the
fields and feel like you're a thousand miles from any big city. When I'm
there I think the world was never meant to stray so far from nature; that
we were all meant as individuals to tend our own gardens and walk the
trails and fields among the animals we live with. Anyway, before I start
rambling, I didn't have a long time to spend there, but still managed to
rustle up a blue-gray gnatcatcher, marsh wren, and ruby-throated
hummingbird as highlights.
