Sweet Spring

The first day of spring fell on Sunday, March 20, and Mother Nature has not disappointed nature lovers with pockets of brilliant wildflowers, brightly colored blossoms dangling from tree branches, birds happily chirping in the mornings, and frogs croaking in swelled creeks.

Spring 2016 marks its earliest arrival since 1896. This is good news for those outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy hiking, biking, climbing, and picnicking in the cooler spring temperatures.
