My wife and I took a walk on one of our favorite trails. We brought our camera along so you could follow us on a virtual hike, but be sure to get out and enjoy the wonderful trails Buffalo County has to offer. This one is at Cottonmill Park, near Kearney.

We started our walk with the sun to our backs.

Someone had been riding their bike on the trail. I hope they snapped some pictures for our monthly challenge!

The trail is sprinkled with little signs that have interesting facts.

This month marks the beginning of our Unplug! campaign, so be sure to turn off that computer and head out to see the trails for yourself. Once things start getting a little greener, this trail gets really beautiful.
