Local Summer Hike

The boys and I headed out with a picnic in hand to adventure in our local Arroyo Seco. Despite the dry southern California summer, the river still holds water. We discovered flame skimmer dragonflies investigate the water in search of lunch if you throw a stone or drop a leaf. My oldest son spotted tadpoles. As he ventured over the rocks, he found hundreds of tiny frogs each delightfully teeny.

I'm amazed how grounding a simple hike can be and how the important things, like sticks and water...

...and mud can enlist the powers of imagination and unleash delight.
