Once we completed the longer loop trail around the preserve and returned to the nature center, we also walked the
floating boardwalk that loops through the wetlands.

Throughout our hikes today, the temperatures were around 80 degrees with mostly clear skies. It was a great
day out with Shawn in the sun enjoying nature.
