Sam stomped in the mush, stopped to make snowballs and eat snow, we looked at animal prints along the way, enjoyed being out in the sunshine without jackets, walked to the river to watch the water roar by, and in general, took advantage of a beautiful spring-like January day. Sam did really well - although we only walked 3/4 of a mile, we were out for about an hour and 15 minutes, dawdling, exploring and just being out in the woods. The perfect kind of walk with a little one!
Out enjoying the sunshine!

Snack break! She was getting quite tired on the way back and kept just plopping down in the snow saying she needed a break. Ha :-)
Late afternoon light as we head back up towards the Ecology Center. She insisted I find her a stick for the final stretch to help her along.
