Hiking at Jamaica Bay


On Saturday, Violet came along on one of my family's favorite short hikes- the West Pond loop at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. Even though we go there pretty often, Violet didn't get a chance to go last time she was here. Plus, as I mentioned earlier this year, Jamaica Bay just debuted its new Junior Ranger program!

I had fun helping Violet do the different activities in the Junior Ranger booklet. The highlight of the hike was seeing an osprey at its nest! Awesome!

Violet made a photo album of our afternoon, which you can check out here.
