A Scavenger Hike!

My parents were here from Virginia for a long weekend! We had an amazing time. One of the highlights was when we went to The Stone Door. It is a beautiful hiking trail that is paved the first 1/3 of the way. I thought it would be fun to check out the fall colors.

This is supposed to be a waterfall. Not so much, eh? We haven't had any rain, so we weren't surprised at the lack of falling water.

I bet you are wondering why Breuklyn has her trick or treat pumpkin, aren't you?
We had a scavenger hunt to go along with our hike. They had to find red, yellow and green leaves, an acorn, a feather, pine cone, rock and berries or seeds. This way, the focused on all of the nature that they were surrounded by. I wanted them to see all of the fun things that fall has to offer. When they would find something from their list, they would put it in their bucket.

Except for all of the bees while we were trying to have our picnic, it was the perfect day. I love fall.
