Wetland Overlook

After spending an hour at the playground it was time to hike it out to the wetland overlook at River Legacy Park.  The trail was paved and there were lots of people out running and biking.  We kept a decent pace and enjoyed the wildlife.  The first part was pretty open, but then we got into a wooded area with a warning sign to watch for bob cats!  We did see animal prints while we hiked too!  

Here is Talmage and Owen

This is supposed to be a really cool spider web.  Can you see it?  

The bridge over the trinity river.  It was flowing pretty good.

Finally made it to the overlook.  It wasn't really labeled and it didn't seem very much like a wetland (since it was so dry), but we had fun.  We ate our lunch at the overlook.

So tired! 

I think we all needed a nap after that hike!  It was fun to be out, but still kind of warm for a mile hike (each way).  The kids were good sports though :).  
I'm looking forward to more fun field trips with the kids!
