Here are some pictures of our first "official" hike on a trail. While we have been out exploring before, we have not taken the kids on a real hiking trail. We found a fairly easy path that was probably as flat as it gets out here. We did come across some amazing views and several streams. The kids loved walking over the bridges and throwing sticks into stream.
Some highlights of this adventure include:
~Caroline insisting on being the line leader at all times
~Tucker stepping in the shallow stream intentionally and getting his right foot wet
~Finding lots of good walking sticks
~Learning about moss and bark
~Seeing the beautiful icicles on the shady side of the mountain
~Tucker saying "I'm too big" when he really meant that he was too small and wanted to be carried
