What An Adventure, The Final Chapter!

 Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar.  Today, Maggie and I are wrapping up our really cool adventure on the Hudson Trail.  Lots of these photos are wildflowers, so that ties in really nice with our regularly scheduled Serene Scenery Sunday.  Ready to take one last look?

The quest for wildflowers started as soon as we hit the grassy part of the trail.

"Beware of sunflowers, Ragnar!"
"Mom?  Are we going to stop and take pix of all of them?"
"Not allllllllll of them ..."

Before we even got to that first big down-and-up, we paused to do some quick shooting:

After that, Mags and I were ready to go!

"Let's get this off-roading party started!"
"Are you ready, Mom?"

Mom said she was ready, so we walked and walked and walked!  Much of our route looked like this:

Ah, Kansas!

It might look very plain, but if you look closely, you see things like the sunflowers, these bright blue flowers ...

... and this beautiful kind of Goldenrod:

 I'm learning that Kansas really is a beautiful place - it doesn't take much to see the beauty everywhere!

"Oh, I hope we get to hike this trail again soon!"
"Me, too, Ragnar!  Oooh, look!  Another big hill!"
 
Thanks for coming on our big adventure with us!  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did -- and we hope you have a very serene Sunday!

Sköl!
Ragnar
