Leaf identification hike

One pleasant and sunny afternoon this week provided a perfect opportunity for our first big leaf identification hike. Leaf charts in hand, magnifying glass in our scientific wagon, and eyes ready to find the perfect fall leaf, we set off on our adventure.

Kellan found this one right outside of our house. Imagine it!

Looking under our magnifier to examine and identify a find.

Um, ok, no Kel, not those leaves...

A rather degraded sweetgum ball. But, we managed to figure it out!

Even scientific explorers need a rest sometimes.
