I picked a little park just outside the city. I'd driven to it before, but never really been in the park - so I thought it might be a nice little change. As we pulled up, I was a bit worried, as it really didn't look like it would be much - it was just fields, a few patches of trees (of the no-underbrush variety), the river, and that looked like about it.
Boy, was I wrong!
Of course, I didn't get the pictures going early enough... We went through a little patch of trees - and one of the kids noticed that the forest floor was different - so we looked at it closely (picking up a bit) - and they realized it was like really tiny wood-chips... from trees long ago.
We also looked at lichen and moss on the trees.
Then there was a nice hill to roll down, which they all enjoyed doing.

I was amazed at the variety of nature we found when we looked, when at first it seemed there wouldn't really be a lot.
