Hello Peninsula Trekkers!!
We had a great time at Windy Hill this week. The weather changed daily making each morning a new adventure – we hiked and played in rain sprinkles, warm sunshine, wind and cloud cover! We made several stops along the hike, to pick up maps of the park (the kids loved seeing were they were going to hike), to get “fern stamps”, to play in puddles and waterfalls, to crawl over, under and around fallen trees, and to feel the moss growing on the trees. A highlight this week was stopping at our “bouncing tree” – remember how much fun we had bouncing? I think many of us could have stayed at that spot all day! We explored the pond (most saw ducks and coots, one lucky class spied some turtles sunning themselves on a log!) and had a picnic snack nearby. We ended class by making Valentine art and getting our weekly stamp (always popular with the kids!).
We look forward to seeing you next week at Arastradero Preserve.
Hi Saturday Trekkers,
We had high hopes that the weather was going to clear the morning of our hike. In fact, Pam was hiking on the CA coast where it was sunny! Unfortunately, we can't control the weather and the rain didn't clear up in time for us to enjoy Windy Hill. Thanks to all of you for your flexibility and for going along with Plan B (aka the Palo Alto Jr. Museum!). See you next week at Arastradero Preserve.
Cindy and Pam
