1. we had never been there before and we like exploring new places
2. it was on their way to our house from their house.
|The Maas Family Hikers|
|Scoping out the map and making sure cameras were working (they weren't - oops!)|
|We saw several of these big holes along the path. It was fun coming up with imaginative reasons for why they exist.|
|Caleb found a friend.|
|Group shot (except Glenn, our photographer) at the clearing at the power lines.|
|Devon & Kate|
|Enough pictures of Maases, let's see some mosses.... er... fungi.|
|Devon needed to get a closer look.|
|Doesn't it look like a turkey tail?|
|We tried to catch frogs in this puddle|
|but they didn't want to be caught.|
|We came across a basement.|
|Walking back along the truck road|
|we often veered of the road to pick flowers and berries.|
|Devon's fun find.|
After our hike we headed back to our house for our traditional Labor Day meal - Cream Can Dinner!
|We taught them our favorite game of the summer - soccer golf!|
|Other soccer players waiting for our turns.|
It was fun to have guests for the 4th of July! Thanks for coming Devon & Kate!
