This was a great hike! I have hiked in the park many times but learning about the history and environment gave me a whole new perspective.

Gorgeous day, bluebirds, amiable companions, great observations from Rick, a bit of snow and ice to provide a modicum of challenge. Ideal start to the year.

the book was really good. Domonic led the way on the scavenger hunt. He really likes going to the "new spot". He even spotted changing leaves later on that day.
