I took this picture towards the beginning of our hike. The chipmunks were really noisy today! This guy was just sitting there, chirping/clicking at us! We also saw a couple of squirrels running around with nuts in their mouths, but they were too quick for me to get their pictures!
Along the way, we saw these beautiful mushrooms. I have no idea what kind they are. They were quite tiny -- although that's hard to see from this picture!
Of course, we were also hoping to see some color on the trees, but there wasn't much yet. We did see this gorgeous tree, though. We'll have to come back out here in a few weeks when the colors will be even more impressive. We did not see anyone else on our entire hike this morning -- it was very peaceful!
And since "parrot" is in the title of my blog, I feel like I should include at least one parrot picture! This was taken of Beeps, a few months ago. I can't remember now if he was showing off or threatening me, but I loved how I captured him in this pose. He is just so funny!
And with that, I wish everyone a fantastic weekend and I will be back posting on Monday!
