Outdoor Hour Challenge
Winter Berry Hunt – Nature Walk
Our last hike along the river was on a cold but sunny day last week. This particular trail allows for one way hiking on a loop that goes upstream on the Deschutes River and then across a bridge and back downstream on the other side. Although it’s a popular trail, keeping us all hiking in one direction means you can easily space out and feel as if you have the trail all to yourself.
We noticed quite a few shrubs with berries along the trail and it reminded me of this winter berry hunt nature study idea. I was wishing you all could see the many berry colors!
I hope that you can squeeze in a winter berry hunt sometime soon. Let me know what you find along your neighborhood trails.
