Nature Explorers Club~Bailey Canyon Park

The Nature Explorers Club finally went on our first hike of the new school year~yay!! I definitely wanted to try some new hikes this year and internet-stumbled upon one not too far from our house. The location was Bailey Canyon Park in Sierra Madre and we braved the Canyon View Nature Trail to the water fall. It was an awesome and enjoyable hike. With the recent rains we've had, everything was looking so fresh and green! The hike was pretty easy. There are some spots that the young ones need some help traversing, but nothing impossible! Part of the hike does include a very steep section, but it was definitely worth it and we could all use a little more exercise, right?! Although the waterfall is seasonal, we were lucky enough to see a little trickle still coming down. What a beautiful day it was to enjoy God's wondrous creation! 
Okay, so maybe this pic isn't so nature-y!
