Retracing History

Mom wanted to link history and nature which lead us to hike the Greenspring Greenway Trail near Williamsburg, Virginia.
The three mile trail traces the foot steps of the Indians and the early colonists.
The trail is next to the "Mainland Farm" which is the oldest continuously cultivated farm in America!
It's 1 mile south of the first permanent English settlement ~ Jamestown. So this puts the farm well within boundaries of the first American Settlement
Here we are! Starting out on our adventure!
Kiley is checking out a noise heard somewhere off the bridge
The boardwalk runs through the wetlands so we don't get out paws muddy
We're coming up now alongside the Mainland Farm
We discover some ancient farm equipment
The cornfields remind me of our furfriends in the midwest.
Retracing the steps of the early colonists
Pocahontas is that you?
