Yesterday we traveled a half hour north to “Oregon Ridge Park” for a picnic, nature center visit, and Nature Quest Hike.
I love the tallness of the trees here. The general mood of the forest is a good one and the weather was perfect. On the edges, Mountain Laurel was in full bloom.
Our finds: Robin Egg shell, flowering bud, a snail shell. Spotted: chipmunk, frog, minnows
Our hike (moderate/hard rating) involved several stream crossings and steep hills. The kids really earned this one.
