I love this one! Juanita Bay Wetlands.
Also a favorite! Turtle trio! Juanita Bay Wetlands.
These were mutant dandelions - they were as big as a man's hand! This game preserve was built on a former dump - hmmm.......toxic waste?
We took a GREAT field trip on Tuesday with Arlie's class to UW Game Preserve, Juanita Bay Wetlands, St. Edward's Park, and the heron rookery. We saw so much wildlife and it was a beautiful day. We hiked for HOURS, through grasses as tall as our heads, on the trails and in the park. The teacher took us on what she claimed was a "short hike" through St. Edward's park. We hiked up and up and went right off the trail and up the hillside, ending up in someone's back yard! She said she had lost her way, so went around to ask directions of the owners, then emerged out the back door, holding two big boxes of popsicles! It was HER house. The kids were thrilled (and the parents were duped - we had no idea!). It was an exhausting day, but so much fun!
