Morning hike

Found a great little Audubon affiliated state park last week - Stelzer.  Kids did about 3 miles with some decent hills.  We were really impressed with the place - great educational displays about the flora and the fauna, friendly ranger, good shade for picnic (hard to find hiking out here in the desert).  Lots of birds.  Lots of plants in bloom.  

 Bonkers - hiking buddies

 The Buddha - just taking a minute for quiet reflection of her hike.  Yes, that is a playground.  I'm usually not a big fan of playgrounds at campgrounds/state parks, etc.  They are in nature for crying out loud - find something to do in it!  You don't need a slide!  But we were so impressed by all the rest of the park, I let it 'slide.'
