Growing Out On A Limb

Kearney Lake Trails

1 Comment

Saturday was a beautiful, sunny fall-ish day – the perfect day for a hike.  The Kearney Lake trails are near Kearney Lake beach, which the kids and I visited early in the summer, so less than fifteen minutes from our house.  I am definitely putting this on my revisit-when-the-leaves-turn list.

The trail we were on came down along Kearney lake in a couple of spots.  This is Popcorn Island.  Don’t ask me why.

The trail was rocky and full of roots in a lot of places but the kids are used to that and had no trouble.  IMG_4315 IMG_4317 Eleanor, as usual, was along for the ride.  IMG_4321 Apple break!  IMG_4336 IMG_4337

At about the halfway point we took a trail off to the left that was quite beautiful with moss-covered rocky cliffs to one side but it ended up not being a trail after ten minutes or so of hiking.  No problem… we sat and had our apple break, took this muscly-posed shot, then found our way back to the main trail.  IMG_4342 This might be my favorite shot of the day.  Just a hint of fall.  IMG_4345 Then we came to Charlie’s Lake.  Gorgeous.  And look… does this mean they like each other after all?  IMG_4353 IMG_4362I did not feel well but am glad that we got out for this hike.  The fresh air had to be good for my cold and was definitely good for the soul.  The kids love looking around the woods and finding neat things in nature and, for whatever reason, maybe just the distraction of it all, we rarely have to referee when we are out like this.  That makes for a nice break for all of us.
