A Good walk

I’m back at SAMi now, four days a week, teaching Outdoor Ed. Mostly Freshmen in my classes, although there is a sprinkling of the other grades mixed in too.
I like it. Class is essentially a walk in the park, with stops here and there to go through some plant identification. (We’re hitting the deciduous ones pretty hard right now, while they still have their leaves, but once winter gets here, it’s a whole new ball game.) In addition to the flora, there’s ample opportunities to follow the fauna as well. Chipmunks and squirrels top the list of sightings, but there are deer in the bushes from time to time, and the birds are downright delightful. Eagles along the cliff trail and woodpeckers in the snags. Hummingbirds, ravens and even the odd barred owl are there, if you know where to look.
I’ve had a lot of jobs in my time, but this one is becoming one of my favorite.
