What it looked like

We enjoyed scary beautiful January weather at Morgan Territory on Sunday and it looked a little bit like this:

It was 5 years ago this April that we started this Outside Kids thing and the first place we went was Morgan Territory. Then we walked maybe 1 mile and endured melt downs before we got back to the parking lot. We were also 3 families. Things have changed. Next time we go, we'll definitely go further now that our legs are up to the challenge. And there are a lot more of you participating!

We talked a lot while walking about how dry it was. It should be green instead of brown. The seasonal creeks were completely dry and the ponds had barely any water if they did at all. What are the birds doing without fresh seeds? What are all of the animals doing without their usual wet winter? It's easy to ignore the impacts of the drought from our comfortable homes, but it's another thing out there in the wilds of Contra Costa County. Lots to think about...
