Just a quick 15 minute drive from our house, is a 140-acre privately-owned forest, open to the public for self guided exploration.
5 miles of trails crisscross the woodland, connecting a variety of habitats and forestry demonstrations.
Tegan saw a bear!
The Everett Hall can be rented for parties....we need to have a party, it looks nice in there!!

The trails are super!
Poles for climbing.
Targets for throwing axes at!

That looks like an extra fun and interesting place for walkies! We love places like that!ReplyDelete
What a super place. And self-guided explorations are always the best! (I tend to be guided by my nose).ReplyDelete
oh I agree that is the place for a pawty... and I think even the bear would come for a beer ;O)ReplyDelete
We have a park kind of like that near our cottage...but we haven't been there yet. Mama has difficulty getting around with her mobility issues and Dad doesn't really like to take us without mama. Love all of these pics of you two! Was the water good out of that fountain??ReplyDelete
What a beautiful place for a hike! It makes me anxious to hike Sleeping Giant!ReplyDelete
That's a wonderful place to explore Wyatt and Tegan, but throwing with axes does not sound safe, so keep out there, there are many more acres to hike.ReplyDelete
Wow, what a pawesome forest! They thought of everything. Tegan was sure brave about seeing a BEAR, though!!ReplyDelete
Wow, a beautiful spot for a day trip!ReplyDelete
Wowzers, does that ever look like a great place to go exploring! And Tegan took down a BEAR?!?! Holy mackerel, she must really be quite the strong girl! How totally awesome.ReplyDelete
