Came across 4 of these together. This one was very interested in my walking stick! They are 'grubbing' MACHINES!!

Location: Elm Fork Preserve

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 1.50 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: It is Winter for sure! No leaves on the trees, which allows for seeing so much more of the lay of the land, and the Armadillo activity! This is a very nice 'little' hike, with much opportunity to see wildlife, mushrooms, and natural growth. Unfortunately, they have decided to build an extension to the Bush Toll road just behind (to the east) of the preserve, and there is a shooting range in that direction as well, that lessens the 'privacy' and quiet factor. I hike this preserve at least twice a month, and highly recommend it for a good day hike and meditation space, especially this time of year.
