Hike at Hemitite

During March we headed out to LBL for a hike. I have been so busy with the feast preparations I haven't had time to post the pics. It was Tim's Spring Break so he took a day off to join us for a field trip to the lake. We began with a picnic and then took a 2 mile hike around Hemitite Lake. We found the lake higher than expected and were grateful for the help of passers-by to get our kids across on the stepping stones. Tim was worried we'd all go floating away-including me. Laurel found large pieces of hemitite and is pictured here with her "find of the day". The kids were on the lookout for turtles, geese, and beaver activity. Notice the turtle on the log in the photo here. A good time was had by all. Carter tired toward the end, but found new life in his legs when he spotted the van and knew a capri sun drink was within reach.
