Hovander Park in Ferndale, Washington has so many beautiful places to walk.
You can walk along the river and through the farm.
One of my favorites is the swamp walk.
You start your walk through a fragrance garden.
Then you meander through a small field with grass as tall as you are
with the sweet scent of grass being heated by the sun.
When you reach the swamp you step up onto board walks
that circles around and through the swamp,
you feel nestled into the tightly woven foliage
that sometimes opens to give you beautiful vistas deep
into the swamps' landscapes.
It also has amazing views of the snow capped volcano, Mt Baker.

If you go in the early morning or late evening in the
early spring you will hear the most incredible choir of mating toads.
