another week of virus, another week of parks

three kids hanging on a tree over a riverOur friends in Michigan can no longer visit parks or hike trails in the midst of the spreading covid-19.  So we’re continuing to be thankful that our parks are still open.  It’s been fun to smile and say hello at all the hikers.
