I took a 4 mile walk on the Cape Cod Rail Trail this morning.

It was teeming with life! There were healthy grasses and clover as well as very mature garlic mustard and other invasive plants. There were birds and bunnies and who knows what in the more wooded areas.

I came across a number of slugs crossing the path, leaving their distinctive trail chronicling their travel. Sometimes it appeared they changed their minds part way, or maybe lost their sense of direction. How many finished their race to the other side ahead of the rising sun or before becoming a morning snack, I don’t know.
