Turkey Run Loop
We thought that we might go down to Alexandria this morning and visit Tracy and the kids but they were a little busy. Since we were all ready to go, I filled some water bottles and we went on a hike at Turkey Run park. The trail was really nice - short (about .75 miles) but a little challenging with some steep switchbacks and 2 stream crossings. The kids had a great time - it took us about an hour - we were really taking our time. We stopped to enjoy the creek, see a toad, have a snack and take some pictures jumping off a log. It was perfect for little ones, although I did have to carry Declan going down and up some steep sections and to cross the stream. Next time I'll bring a towel and I'll just have them take off their shoes to cross the stream - it was shallow and perfect for wading!!
