Winter Weather Walk



We set out for our Winter Weather Walk – our observational direction?

  • Look for things man made.
  • Look for things natural.
  • Spend part of the walk in silence: Hear, Feel, See
  • Pick an object to draw from the nature walk.

We had a very short time frame – but enough time to stroll through the forest.  The picture above is of Regatta Park in Lincoln City, to the left is a wonderful old growth forest with circular trails. It is a favorite of my youngest – Jon.









Here is the view when we pop out of the trail in front and beside us.




Now they enjoy the pavement, more than the playground – took a moment to whip out the long boards. Makes mom a little nervous as they careen down the hill . . . .

The next day – this morning – we worked on the notebooking pages.  I am continuing my experiment that they may use any paper/medium for their notebooking, as long as they spend time either answering my direct questions or finding areas of interest to write about.  So far – I am still REALLY enjoying what they come up with!

    Angie, I do geocaching, and I so totally have never seen a geocache tag like that…

    But now my juices are flowing… I think my son would enjoy it if I could find a way to combine a geocache hike with one of our nature study hikes…

    Great ideas with the pages! The list of Items God-made and man-made is interesting (and humorous)!

  6. I think the custom nature journal pages are the best anyway…good job on yours too, really nicely done and so personalized. I love the details your boys are showing and they look like they are recording their experiences which is the main objective anyway.
    Love to see your entries…I understand the longboard part of the “nature study” too. Thanks for sharing your nature study with the OHC.
