Adventures in

No mistaking it – this is an adventure. Melissa Hennessey, her five-year-old daughter Sophia, and Jenna Zoino slip off the beaten path, duck beneath a barely visible opening in the tangle of Virginia creeper and briars, and slip into the woods. Not only does an air of adventure hang around the trio, but an aura of mystery too. Who knows what they’ll find?

“If we’re going to reveal the sites, we have to agree on having personal anonymity,” says Zoino, holding a branch aside for little Sophia to duck beneath. Hearing the humans’ approach, some creature skitters away, its noisy escape announced by leaf cover left dry by a summer of too little rain. Everyone pauses to consider what it might be. “Squirrel?” “Sounded like something bigger.”
