Hiking at Friedrich Wilderness Park

This weekend we decided to take the girls "hiking" at Friedrich Wilderness Park in northwest San Antonio. The Hip Chicks did better than we thought they would since our girls are not really the energetic types. Natalya held the map and helped identify the species of trees and plants that were labeled. Vienne hunted for bugs.

It's hard to imagine that such a wonderful natural area could exist so close to the big city of San Antonio (although you can still hear the rush of the highway nearby.) The Park has several trails of varying levels. We took part of a trail that was a level 3 that led to one of the "oldest working windmills in Bexar County". The only wildlife we saw were a few cardinals and one squirrel but our own Wild Life were not so peaceful and probably scared everything away.

The girls actually want to go back. I recommend bug spray although I was the only one that got bit. It's a great free few hours.

This will be My Best Shot Monday. I overlooked the memo that said we were to tilt this week so I will work on that. Check it out at Picture This.

This is a nice shot, I like how you captured the light shining down - I like the one of the hand in the light as well.
Looks like you had a really great day.
