Winter Hiking

IMG_6735We love hiking as a family.  It gets us outside, moving, listening, and practicing patience with one another.IMG_6737

I especially like hiking in the cooler months.  It’s not so crowded at the state parks, and there are sometimes obstacles that make the hike exciting, like mud, ice, snow, and fallen branches.  The kids love these challenges, especially when you give them the go ahead to step in the mud and get dirty.
