COOL STUFF! and GIVEAWAY reminder.

The big hike was a great adventure.  The weather couldn't have been better.


The kids saw lots of cool stuff:  like wild flowers, interesting plants and trees, and bugs and birds and even a lizard or two.

There was a creek to play in.  Its source is a warm spring just up the hill.


DH came along and told us about edible plants.  He showed us how to make whistles out of pop grass.
He's spent many years as a scout master so he has plenty of experience working with youngsters in the outdoors. 


We lunched in the shade.


The hikers all got an arrowhead like the ones used by Native Americans.  DH makes them as a hobby and was kind enough to produce enough for everyone in the group.

Don't forget about the GIVEAWAY.  See my previous post for information.

Nothing like hiking with kids. They see things we would walk right by.
