Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

We took a short hike last weekend with our teenage son along an old favorite local trail along a creek that we hadn't been to in years. It was a lovely, sunny day and even warm! Here are a few highlights:

My son crosses the creek on a fallen tree

Dried leaves still clinging to branches
My sons have loved climbing on this sycamore since they were very young!

Boy and beaver dam

Lots of sycamores along the creek

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!


  1. What a beautiful walk! I wish I had something besides city streets around me...LOL.


  2. What could be better than revisiting a favorite hiking trail with your son? Sounds like a perfect day to me. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures.

  3. Your photos are lovely, especially that first one, with reflection of the fallen tree in the water. My Snapshot is at

  4. Perfect family outing! Thanks for sharing.

  5. It looks like a wonderful family walk! The sunny, warm days in winter are such a treat (and I'd like to have one about now...)

  6. Your posts are so often outdoorsy- I think that's great. I always mean to walk more often, but rarely get around to going. This looks a nice walk. Nice that your son goes with you, we can barely get ours off the couch. I'd love to see a beaver dam one day.
