Rendezvous here we come!

We completed Park Quests 9-11 today which means we get to go to the Rendezvous 29 Sep! It also means I'm really trying to stop myself from trying to do the last 12 in the next couple weeks! 
We were blessed with super weather today. It was 62 degrees when we got to Greenbrier State Park. It was very foggy but still pretty. The kids were super excited to find tons of spider webs- they were very pretty. This one had a heart in the middle of it. We followed "Big Foot's footprints" to learn about leaving no trace. The kids loved climbing on the rocks around the pond and we were all fascinated by the animal in the lake which looked like an alligator. 
Lots of posing for pictures along the walk.

Next up was Gathland- still 62 degrees out- amazing for August! We learned about GATH and honoring Civil War news correspondents. A little history about battle for South Mountain and then off to the Appalachian Trail for the Bonus Quest. We signed the log book with all our hiking names.
What a cutie!
Last PQ of the Day was Gambrill- such pretty views. we enjoyed the short hike and natural playground
is this Iron Mike?
off to South Mountain Creamery to get our passport stamped and BOGO ice cream! Yum!

Sweet end to a super day!
