As we crossed the musical bridge, we observed that Peterson Creek had the highest flow levels we’ve seen yet this Spring. As we made our way down the winding trail to Curly Willow Bend that became even more apparent as parts of the trail were beginning to flow over with water. Luckily this week we could still get by, but when we arrived at our usual crossing we found our bridge to be all together gone – “it’s too creeky” EF exclaimed! After a brief discussion about whether or not our place was safe to play in and how it might be safe to cross the creek today our group found another way, over the car bridge, down the road to get into Curly Willow Bend.
The children couldn’t get their packs off fast enough, because there was something drastically different about this place today!
Thursday, April 26th was a beautiful, sunny day that inspired our venture down into the Curly Willow Bend, to discover how Spring was unfolding there. After some quick bridge repairs, the whole group got to test our balance one by one, using bear crawls and limbs as needed. PA was very brave and got her first chance to cross one of our self-constructed bridges across the creek!
