Well this is it - last section!  Oh wait, OK so actually I decided to break this last section into two, because Parker is now hiking by herself (most of the time) and today we hiked 5 miles - plenty for a 4 year old in my opinion.  So here's our hike of the Skyline Trail section 4 between Randolph Avenue and Chickatawbut Road.  Warm weather and no rain = happy day.

Across a little grassy area before heading into the woods - Parker is very skilled in following the blue blazes

Our one wildlife sighting.  Parker touched it.

Back on the Skyline Trail today with Parker, to do section 3! (of a planned 4).  The little 4 year old walked a majority of it, though our "picnic" at the top of Buck Hill was cut short due to weather (wind and dropping temps).

Hollow tree, great for saying hi to your daughter

I was initially nervous about my chosen footwear for Sparks, but she rocked the Tevas

In the Poco for the return trip because it got cold and Daddy didn't prepare well - shame!
