We are slowly exploring our neighborhood which is Bent Creek. One warm day a week ago, we went on a hike up the hill from our apt where I saw a couple of small bears last summer. The green moss are all out. The color is so intense that I just want to shrink myself small and live among the small creatures in the moss. Lulu had a great time. She pretended to be a small rodent finding a small tree hole as her burrow. Rocky collected tree ear mushroom for our potential hot and sour soup. We spotted some mountain mint to make tea returning home.
