The Shikatehawk trail is our favorite. We only go in as far as the deep hole but it is the perfect distance for both boys to walk (Emery too) and the deep hole offers the perfect pause between the walk in and the walk out – the boys love throwing sticks and rocks in the water and running up and down the hill.
Just the boys and I took the walk on this beautiful sunny day, about a month ago. The camera battery died before I took many pictures but I did manage to walk out with some fiddleheads so it was still a win.
Emery is slower but Oliver is (usually) pretty good about not running too far ahead. It’s fairly easy to occupy him with talk about what’s around us… trees, moss, leaves, etc.
Love this shot.
