One of our favorite places nearby for "hiking" (less than a mile) is Cathedral Pines. This is the first time we have made it here this year, and it was perfect!
Sora loves to do "balance balance beam" on anything that resembles one. She also loves our family nature walks, which is good since we do them almost nightly around camp. She is really into wildlife this year and is mesmerized by the frogs croaking, squirrels, chipmunks, birds, and more. She can name some of the most common trees and is always pointing out beech trees to Kyle, since he told her they were his favorite. At this particular spot, there are 40+ Great Blue Herons, which Sora enjoyed watching as well. Spring is definitely here to stay in the Northwoods!
