on saturday patrick and i drove to fairmount park to hike in the woods for a few hours. we also brought some bags to collect rocks, moss, and ferns (we're going to try making a few terrariums). we found a lot of moss and mushrooms and a lot of mica at the riverbank edges. we (and by we i mean patrick) ended up with about 10 lbs. of little stones to carry home.
patrick also filled up a test terrarium with some of the moss and stones we found at fairmount park. we didn't put any activated charcoal in it so we'll have to keep an eye on it for a few days, but it looks awesome!
