Actually, we went for a drive in the woods, then parked and walked about fifty feet from the car, cause Mommy can't keep up with real walks yet... Distance isn't what matters, though.
We found two full sets of tracks from what dh is guessing was a bobcat. And then another set that we think was a raccoon.
And we found pools full of newts by the stream. I know we've got newts here, as close to home as the pond in my own backyard, but it's always neat to actually see them. And to see my six and five year olds see them... I could kick myself for leaving the camera up in the car. This post really needed pictures.
