Walking the Labyrinth

Walking the Labyrinth

It’s true what they say: Some things are hidden in plain sight. Although I’ve walked the Kortum Trail at least a dozen times, I’ve never noticed the labyrinth before. My guess is that it’s less than 100 feet from the trail, but if you don’t know it’s there, you’ll probably miss it. This time, I’m so … Continue reading

It really is all here, right now
