After Jeremy and I spent most of Friday in the car, and the boys spent it cooped up inside with grandpa–the first thing we did when we got back was get coats on everyone and head out of town a wee five minutes to get out into real nature.
We haven’t been on this hike since it was all green early last summer. It’s a hilly little hike in the trees by a river that *almost* makes me think I’m up in the mountains (once we walk through the prairie grasses to the wooded portion, of course).
I love visiting the same hike in different seasons. It’s amazing to see the transformations that take place through the changing year. And it’s always fun to revisit favorite spots on the hike–like the tree with the roots you can climb under.
