Whoa. Time flies when you’re at outdoor school! Thanksgiving and the winter holidays flew by faster than a Peregrine. The Exploring New Horizons crew and students piled on their raingear and boots in preparation for the winter. The rains came and went, the Pescadero (Oh, Pescadero!) Creek raged, and hundreds of colorful and groovy fungus popped up through the wet soil beneath the redwood trees. Students were greeted daily by the bright yellow of the banana slug and have thanks to the happy little decomposers by giving them lots of smooches!
Soon the rains gave way to spring soil. On February 2 we reached the midpoint of the winter solstice and the spring equinox and began to celebrate the return of light to our forest home. Now at last the sun is here and the flow rolls on. The students are growing speedily along with the wildflowers and the vegetables in our organic garden. Toothwort, milkmaids, sorrel, trillium and poppies have kissed our home with droplets of color and perfume. As always, the energy at ENH is soaring and we’re looking forward to a magnificent spring filled with more sights, sounds, smells, smiles, songs and online blackjack
Over and out from the land of the redwoods!
