The Glendo Lake is a huge lake and there are tons of places to explore along the lake that we have not even been to. Every time the weather allows us to go for a hike, we take the chance. But this time, it was cold and the wind didn't help with the weather. We needed to go somewhere and take the kids out of the house so even with the cold windy weather and all, we still went. And we decided to explore this area. The wonderful thing about it is we didn't have to go too far away from home and didn't have to spend any money. We brought our own food and water for after the hike.
There were lots of huge fish heads and bones along the trail. I think we may have found where the good fishing spot is for the next fishing season.
Fish heads and bones weren't the only one present along the trail. There were these things too. I know the name, but I don't even know how to spell it so please let me know. (Kokobers? Cuckobers? Cucumber? LOL! I don't know how to spell it) These sticky, spinny things were all over the place and in fact, they pretty much dominated some parts of the beach. If you see some brown patches on the lake, those were these things. Not fun!
A little man found a broken fishing pole along the trail. He carried it all through the hike and back to the vehicle, and decided didn't want to take it home.
Dadda's teaching the young man about the safety and the danger when exploring places. I hope some of those went through his brain and will remember it. Every time we go somewhere to explore, we constantly remind our kids, especially the young man to always be careful and pay attention to the surroundings. It pays to be safe and cautious.
Both were tired and ready to go home.
Have a great weekend!
