Big Basin — Ethan’s first “hike”

On Sunday, we took a drive to Big Basin where Ethan “hiked” his first hike!

Armed with a stick… he was off!

He took a short break to play peek-a-boo with Mommy.

Well, it was getting a bit tough, this hike… perhaps big sister wouldn’t mind helping.  He’s a bit wobbly here…

This tree fell in 1983 — where were you when it fell?  Did you hear it?!  ( I was in 3rd grade!)

The museum was pretty cool… lots of hands on stuff.  Like this raccoon skull! It also had many viles of snakes (Ma was NOT impressed!), stuffed coyotes, owls, birds, mice, rats, insects, etc.  There were many things to see …

But hands-on stuff is always best!

OK, one more pine cone… because the millions we have at home cannot possibly be enough!  😉
