And I think my children's favorite parts are the snacks they get to eat along the way!
There are probably some great trails near your home or within a short drive that you do not even know about. Take advantage of the many resources around you to find a good hike that matches your family's abilities. There are maps at your city/town's Visitor's Center, there are Park Ranger's, which I'm sure are full of information, and there are always your friends, neighbors, and family that you can talk to and see what they know is around. A great resource for us to find fun family friendly hikes has been from the employees at our local university's Outdoor Rental Center. They are usually outdoor enthusiasts and know of all sorts of places within 3 hours around us.
So, for this month's challenge... Go Take A Hike
- Take a "hike" with your family AND take some pictures of your adventure. It doesn't have to be a tough hike, it could be a local nature trail if that is what works best for you. Just get outside and enjoy nature!
- Post it to your blog AND leave a link below. If you do not have a blog (or just do not want to link to it) email me your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org
