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
Brody and I get out in nature every time with travel up north. It’s so pretty up there, and the weather is perfect for an outdoor hike. To not get bored while out in nature (I know, how could you?), but Brody will, we do fun things, like spell words with sticks.
Have you ever spelled words with sticks you find in nature?
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, but we also got in a lot of exercises. A win-win!!
Spell your name with things you find in nature.
How do you perceive nature?
“Nature” is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse— the Bumblebee—
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
A New Mexico Squirrel – it’s black, gray, and white – unlike what we see here in Texas. Look at its tail!
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 a bear. That’s the most exciting part of our hiking in northern New Mexico. However, stay clear of bears!!
