We met at the covered bridge at Mills Riverside Park at 9:30am and meandered into the trees for some climbing.

From there we explored around the small pond and enjoyed collecting sticks and finding a bird nest. After a snack of blueberry muffins in the pavilion, we saw lots of deer scat in the woods while hiking up a somewhat icy trail (stopping to listen to rocks plop into a puddle) to the flat camping ground before circling back for more tree climbing.

Four families joined the hike, with little ones ranging in age from 2 ½ to 9 years. Despite the misty rain and temps in the mid-30s, our intrepid adventurers played for an hour.

Participants: Kristi and Ava; Laura and Lily; Tiana and Kai; and Aaron, Michelle (trip leaders) and Brendan.
