A short paved hike similar to Sand Pond which is perfect for kids. Especially since there’s a bridge to cross and a waterfall at the end.
Not exactly a hike like Saxonia. Sandpond is an interpretive trail and boardwalk through a former beaver pond. It’s great for kids and has some nice views.
After the previous year’s hiking, I took only film with me on a lot of the hikes this year and have decided to break my posts down on a per-hike basis. The hike to Lake Saxonia is the first one we take each year since it’s my mom’s favorite lake and it’s a good getting-used-to-the-altitude hike. And yeah, the last photo here is one of my recurring photo subjects.
Between Christmas and New Year’s we spent a few days in Virginia where we spent Thanksgiving. We decided to go into DC for one of those days and take the boys to the Air and Space Museum and the Museum of Natural History. No reviews or anything from this trip. Just fun to see the boys get excited about airplanes and skeletons and dinosaurs and rockets and the subway.
