Hiking the Garden Trail...

I joined Turtle & Mu's class for their weekly hike this afternoon. After a picnic lunch at the bottom of the Japanese Garden, we headed off up the Garden Trail in Washington Park. It was a jolly decent 'hike' with lots of hills and switchbacks. All the kids did really well, and so did the parents! And of course the scenery was stunning. Huge stands of Sequoia, and lots of pretty bright green Alder sparkling in the dappled sunlight.

Our OMSI Camp organising is well underway. Both boys now have hiking boots, and a somewhat extensive range of super-duper outdoor gear. They even have little packets of disposable soap leaves!?!? Short of a bear attack they should be more than adequately prepared for most eventualities.
