An Afternoon Family Nature Walk: Part 1
My backyard is the connection of two major freeways. Not just any freeways, mind you, but two of the most traveled freeways in the country. I despise traffic and city life is out of my comfort zone. Still, I moved out to California, to this concrete jungle, to be with the love of my life. Shortly after I arrived here five years ago, my wife, knowing my need to be in the outdoors, found a hidden little wooded park a mile from our house that helps me unwind and feel free. 

Last weekend, we took a little walk into this green, leafy wonderland to enjoy some quiet time. My in-laws had never been to the El Dorado Nature Center, so we decided that it would be a perfect way to spend some time on an afternoon. The girls were walking and talking, pointing bugs and critters out while spent the time using my camera to capture what I saw.

We had a fantastic walk full of surprises. Here are some of the photos so you can enjoy as well. Be sure to check in to my next post to see what the big surprise was from our walk.

God has an amazing way of helping nature put a smile on my face.
