IMG_7248

The Oldcastle Nature Trail at the Marcus Autism Center is next to the Marcus Autism Center off of Briarcliff Road.

Sidenote: The Marcus Autism Center offers families access to the latest research, comprehensive evaluations and intensive behavior treatments. It is on of the largest Autism Centers in the United States.

It is a very shady very well kept trail….IMG_7239

It is not really long, but part of it goes up a trail and up a hill with exercise stations alone the way. It winds it’s way back down to a large field and steps up to a school. It’s a fun little trail IMG_7238

North Fork Creekside Trail

Creek TrailWe woke up this morning to snow. It really improved this afternoon, so we (Coop and I), walked to the trail.Trail 9It was about 45 degrees and sunny. A beautiful walk! We came across these guys.Trail 2It is like a beach underneath the expressway.Trail 3A smelly dirty beach but a beach, oh with homeless people. Then we crossed the bridge.

Trail 7Cool huh? But the most exciting part of the walk was across LaVista. They have started a new part to the trail.Trail 16Crazy, it says the trail will take you to Emory University, which is quite a way away. Trail 12It is still a little mucky and rustic, but hey it’s a trail on a beautiful day.

We did come across a few questionable items.Trail 1How do you lose one shoe? Trail 14There were actually two shopping carts. Oh and as we were walking home we walked through a Wells Fargo drive through, where a super nice teller gave Coop a dog bone. He is a picky eater, but he loved the milk bone. What a great ending to a great walk!

Christmas on the Trail

IMG_4110We started on the trail and came upon this tree. It had about 15 ornaments and some red garland and gold garland. I think I will take an ornament on my walk tomorrow to add to the tree.IMG_4149The beautiful red berries on the bushes are natures decoration. IMG_4135These lovely little flowers decorated the path.IMG_4130This Hairy Woodpecker was busy at work. IMG_4146Whoops something is wrong with the picture. Merry Christmas to all!!!
