Saturday Outing

Today the children and I, along with one of our summer staff, went on an outing to an old strip mine site.  We were hoping to see the wild horses that live there and pick some black raspberries.  After driving up a steep gravel road, we parked the car and then meandered around on foot.

We did pick a few black raspberries and blackberries, but it looks like there will be lots of ripe blackberries in a week or two.  While we saw hoof prints and droppings, we never did spot the horses.  Still it was a nice hike and a beautiful day.

On the way out, we stopped at a small waterfall.  The coolness of the woods and water were welcome on a warm afternoon.
