After hiking the last two nature preserves with my adoring husband, Sherman, and his faithful companion, Cell Phone, I decided to once again hike alone.
|Willow Creek, a tributary of Cedar Creek|
As Fort Wayne approached its 200th anniversary, ACRES began looking for an appropriate property to commemorate the historic event.
|A small stream leading to Willow Creek|
|One of several scenic bridges within The Bicentennial Woods preserve|
|I'm sure this knobby tree formation is here for some interesting scientific reason. |
However, my brain can only see one thing...
|ShadeMaster from Genuine Tree Peeple|
|An amazingly textural, twisted tree|
|Even the bracket fungi look like they need some rain.|
|The Wood Nymph, 1898|

In folklore, a sprig of chickweed carried in your pocket was said to draw the attention of a
loved one or ensure the fidelity of your mate.
I would enjoy a return trip to Bicentennial woods. Perhaps the fall, when the leaves are turning, would be a good time to share this little part of Indiana's natural splendor with my kids. And who knows...maybe Sherman and Cell Phone will join us, too!
