First Visit


My location has lots of trees, some marshy areas, and a stream. My first visit was on September 8 at 6:50pm. It was 76 degrees with scattered clouds. The sun was out sporadically during my visit, and there was a slight breeze. The length of the day was twelve hours, forty seven minutes, and fifty five seconds. While I was at my location, I saw quite a few different elements of nature. There was a large yellow jacket hive(see photo below), various tracks, many different types of plants and trees, some flowers, a baby toad, and even a bunny. There were also many different sounds that I heard while I was in the woods such as birds chirping, water trickling, toads croaking, and leaves rustling. I really enjoyed this visit because it was a good time to just relax and enjoy God’s creation.
