Huntin' Shrooms

One of the last days we had of really nice weather (and its been really nice!) the little crew wanted to go mushroom hunting.

So, we took a hike to a favorite little lake to hike, fish, and hunt.

No one else was around, which made it all the better.

It really was a warm, sunny day.

The water was murky, but the trail was dry.

We even did a little fishing... though it wasn't much more than throwing out the lines, and having the kids pester to reel them right in.

We did find a few really cool mushrooms, some fun puff-balls, and lots of interesting things in the woods to explore.

This new crew also started learning the drill about local trees, birds, and plants.

We didn't catch any fish, but did get a nice, juicy salamander... but no one was interested in keeping it.

A great day out!
