The Mitchell Field
We live just down the road from the Mitchell's and the Mitchell Field as we call it. They live on scenic Bald Hill Road--our daily walking route--and they maintain large fields that provide a scenic backdrop along the tree-lined road. Late in the afternoon I wander down to the Mitchell Field with Kodi and Henna as the sun sets behind Bald Hill. The dogs sniff the grass for signs of deer and turkey and voles and other meadow life. We've been wading into the tall grass for weeks now without a single tick sighting. Where did they go I wonder, but without missing their presence. The Mitchell Field is such a gift to those of us who live nearby.
