Walnut Creek

Our motive for the day was to avoid the Christmas crowds of Black Friday weekend. The weather was a little cooler today, but still warm enough for the outdoors so we headed to one of our favorite spots, Walnut Creek.

We dragged Brandi along with us again. I'm not sure if she has decided if she likes getting out or not....she may very well prefer staying in her kennel after having to keep up with us. :-)

There are 17 miles worth of hiking around the creek so I printed out a map before we went so we could venture a different trail on the creek.

When we first arrived it started to sprinkle a little but we didn't let it stop us. The sprinkle eventually died out on our walk. It was a real adventure trying to follow the map. I guess Toby's trail map reading skills need some tweaking. I saw him pondering over the map and then mouthing the word "lost" to me so that our over dramatic daughter did not hear the word. I knew we couldn't get too lost...there are signs throughout the trail pointing you in the right direction.

Eventually we by chance ended up in the old trail area that we are familiar with anyway. It was nice to see the creek had filled back up with water.

After our walk we got hungry and headed for a bite to eat. Toby had to go to work that evening so Summer and I spent the evening watching T.V.

Here are some pics of our walk:
