While on a recent family trip to Vermejo Park Ranch, New Mexico my son and I figured out things to do and see while exploring nature that I thought you all would love to know!
Things to Do and See while Exploring Nature
Have you ever spelled words from sticks you find?
I tried to find sticks and limbs that made a letter, however, I searched and searched for a few and didn’t find them, so I made some with nature sticks!
What do you think I’m trying to spell here?
It spells —-> H E A L T H
Not only did we have fun searching for letters to spell HEALTH, we also got in a lot of exercise. A win win!!
Spell your name with things in nature
“Nature” is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse— the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.
– Emily Dickinson
Look for wildlife in nature
We also spotted a deer very close to where we were hiking…it didn’t even run away.
Many times on our trips to New Mexico we have spotted bear. That’s the most exciting part of our hiking in northern New Mexico. However, stay clear of bears!!
