A New Twist on Treks

 We are introducing a new twist on Taiga Treks.

Since the inception of Taiga Trekkers I've been dreaming of the day when we could add another layer to the Treks. Now that we have a pretty large pre-school contingency we will add a weekly theme to the treks. The theme will be posted ahead of time with the location. There's no work involved, but if you'd like to do a little research ahead of time with your kiddo, you are of course welcome to. The theme will be open ended so it can accommodate all ages.

It might mean that on some hikes the older kids move a little slower, but our group has always moved in clumps down the trail.

Thursday will be our first Trek to try it out! The theme - Animal Tracks!

This is the only winter animal track I could find in our photo library. It is from Kodiak earlier this winter. Bear's don't quite hibernate there the way they do in Anchorage. We should NOT expect to see some of these. We'll probably see moose, human and dog tracks on the trail.
