The Return of Good Weather = Nature Hikes!

It's May!  In Utah, that means we finally get to have some good weather!  (For the most part...don't get me started about the year it snowed on May 24th!)  I decided to dust off the ol' baby backpack and dig out the girls' walking shoes and we set out for the campground near our house this morning.

There was no agenda.  I just wanted us to get out and start getting used to walking up hills and on uneven surfaces once again.  The sun felt nice and we were surrounded by the "Phee-bee" calls of chickadees...it's just not spring to me until I hear the chickadees!







The girls have requested that we return to the "Red Rock" area next week for our next hike.

If you're interested in planning your own nature hikes, I highly recommend Handbook of Nature Study.  It's the blog that motivated me to incorporate nature study into our routine!
