And I quote my son… “that’s how you play in a creek!”
The hike started off clean enough… it’s a 30/30 hike, one that we are quite familiar with at Sioux Passage.
But then the kids spotted the old tree bridge across the creek.
I have never let them cross it because I was always so afraid of them falling!
Well, I am no longer afraid!
Simone found where a snake had slithered in the mud! 🐍
Eli found claw marks from where an animal slipped off the tree bridge…
Andre found LOTS of raccoon tracks…
Eddie found a natural Pogo Stick…
I unfortunately found half-buried rusted barrels – sad to think what used to be in there (contamination?)
After exploring for a bit… The kids’ adventurous spirits came out – but not before I made them hang up their funny packs!
And of course, I’m carrying everything again!
