Maybe its because we all grew up together in a time and place when being outdoors was the norm.
We don't view being outdoors as a scary place filled with bugs, spiders, snakes and things to be afraid of.
We embrace it and try to take time to immerse ourselves in it.
I love hiking and exploring with my family.
We stop and explore..uncover..go off the beaten path.
We all had a picnic lunch..
Wandered around the picnic area
time to explore some more..
Looking for edibles and appreciating the shapes and sizes of them all.
Most go unidentified.
Lions mane..Nice edible!
Leave your guess in comments below..
We all took a bit off to chew as we hiked.
I know I have a few mushroom experts that read this..
Please comment if you know what this is.

Brother John found this spider and threw it at us girls trying to scare us..
We aren't afraid of spiders..
Sicksta Tink goes to pet it!
Some odd fungi..
Family exploring the woods..we leave the path..
We split up and take different paths to the falls.
Brother John and I climb up a steep wall to the top of the falls..
I spot these beautiful berries and grab a few photos..
Lets do this again!
because we are currently in Homey…headed west..
Oregon or Bust!
