Nisqually Wildlife Refuge

There are so many things I love about living in this area and just one includes the gorgeous natural landscapes we have access to within a few minute drive.

I dragged hubby and son to the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge last week...we spend way too much time indoors so when it's sunny we almost have to force ourselves out into the fresh air.

This is about a 15 minute drive from our house and features many different options for walking and exploring.

The last time hubby and I were there we didn't have a little boy. They've made a LOT of improvements since that time. The boardwalk is fantastic and it just seems more put together. We didn't do a long walk...probably less than a mile. They have longer walk options too but we aren't ready for that.

Marshal had a blast playing with rocks, picking at grass, and of course scaring the grey squirrels. There was a sign at the start of the walk that said "BEWARE of SQUIRRELS" which had me laughing. But they are really tame and aggressive. Marshal running at them and growling barely made them twitch.

My favorite part of the walk was daddy and son looking through the big telescope. Marshal was enthralled with it.
