Hiking :: Learning :: Fun

Today was our final hike in a series we've been doing with our homeschool community. On Arabia Mountain, a Nature Preserve in DeKalb County, there is a rare flower that only grows there--the Red Diamorpha. We've had the pleasure of watching it develop over the course of three months. Today we were finally able to view a few of the open flowers.  It grows in wet beds of water that are located atop and along a stone mountain.

Of course the day wouldn't have been complete without enjoying the hot temperatures (it got up to 81 degrees), playing in the cool, clear mountain water and enjoying lunch together.

As we all know, I picture is worth a thousand words and so I will share a few here so you can see just how beautiful this natural habitat is.

Another fun day learning outside of doors!
