Oregon Ridge Nature Quest (Wednesday Picture Diary)

Morning!

I think I’ll begin using Wednesdays to share pictures/what we’ve been up to.

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 hike (moderate/hard rating) involved several stream crossings and steep hills. The kids really earned this one.
