Ohio has beautiful metroparks and the one we live in as well as a bordering one have Falling Hiking Spree’s!!! So last Sunday and today, the husband and I dragged the two youngest off to a hike…..in 86* and a muggy 84*……the teen sons are waiting for much cooler temps, in the 60’s before hauling along with us……
Last week we went here we had a great time and the Princess did a tiny bit of creek walking which made her a very happy hiker. It was a 1.5 mile hike with lots of ups and downs……a bit rough on my bad knee but we persevered! It is very beautiful and peaceful there with the water going over the falls…..
We wouldn’t let her do any creek walking today since the creek was a bit deeper and moving very fast……but we saw lots of green and yellow with an occasional purple flower thrown in, a toad, a dead crayfish, lots of big bumblebees, different types of fungi, alone duck swimming and a huge black butterfly…..
It was a great hike only 1.2 miles and we got to see some things we hadn’t seen in awhile in nature……although it was horribly muggy today and I”m feeling the need for a second shower now…..
