Another week of fun adventures and exploring went down this past Friday. I stumbled upon Annie's Canyon Trail on Yelp and when I saw the photos we just had to go! The canyons are located in Solana Beach about 15-20 min from our house. Once we arrived we found parking near the residential area and made our way down the trail. The views were beautiful as you can see the ocean and the San Elijo Lagoon which are sadly a bit dry. There is also lot's of construction going on which can take away from the peacefulness of a hike but in the end it is all worth it.  The trail leading to the canyon is perfect for small children, the kids had fun looking at all the wildlife. We even stumbled upon some kids who had caught lizards for observation. The canyon it self is not too difficult to do. I did it with both kids although I did have help from my oldest. The kids were in awe when we finally walked through the canyon. They climbed and touched and they loved it so much that we actually went back two days later. Needless to say, this is one of our new favorite hiking destinations.

San Dieguito County Park| EXPLORING SAN DIEGO

New Friday, new adventure. If you're a new reader welcome! I'm a home school mom two my 5 year old who is in kindergarten and my 4 year old who is in preschool. It is very important for me for my kids to grow up connected with nature so every Friday as part of our curriculum we go on a nature walk and every Friday we try to go to some place new. San Diego is full of so many good county parks which make it great for nature walks. Two weeks ago we headed to San Dieguito County Park, we had a picnic and learned about lots of animals and trees. There are information towers which talk about the different types of animals that live in the park which was great for the kids. We had a picnic and walked for hours. There are some strenuous trails but we stayed on the easier side for the kids. Their favorite park was the wood bridge. In the end the kids played in the playground and before you know it almost 4 hours had passed. 
*Parking is $3 but you can also park outside with no fee.
