Today was my first hike with the group. We met at Dawes Arboretum and it was beautiful. I spent the first part of my time at the Arboretum with the group and the later half on my own taking pictures and exploring. For all my push to join a group, I still have a strong desire to be on my own and I could only handle so much time doing what other people wanted to do. (Sorry, I mean no offense by this. I've just been single and independent way too long!)
Anyway, here is the first set of photos from my hike. All total I have about 60 photos to edit and publish. This is the first 20. I hope you like them. I know I loved the Arboretum and will be going back some time in the future! Enjoy!
