Nature Walk: Tracks and Millipedes

The kids went on a hike to learn about animal tracks at a local nature center.  Lucky for them they went before the recent ice storm.   The crust we now have on top of the snow is strong enough that the 50+ pound kids aren’t breaking through (I barely break through and can walk on top is places) so it probably wouldn’t show tracks well.  But, they went when the snow was still nice and soft, and had a nice trek through the woods.

Back at the Nature Center, Vicki was able to get a close-up look at a millipede.  Evidently I’ve been successful at not infecting her with my dislike of bugs, especially those with lots of icky little legs.
