Hiking along the trails on the farm is one way that Vickie finds relief from stress after a busy day. She often takes one of the llamas with her for walking on the trails. They both benefit from walking for exercise, and at the same time enjoy each other’s company on the trail. 

 

Vickie teaches you about llamas along the journey and describes the elements of nature that they encounter during the walk. Listen to the llama hum, the creek rushing by, the Sycamore leaves crunching under foot and other sounds from the walk.

 

Frog Chorus
The frog chorus you hear in this episode is the real deal. Vickie and Scott were returning from a Friday evening dinner out when they passed through Prophetstown State Park and heard the frogs singing in the lowlands of the park. They stopped the vehicle on a service road and hiked over to the swampy area with recorder in hand to capture the frog chorus for you. This location is about one mile from the farm, and the frogs can be heard all around the farm during the spring.
