Spring with the Dirty Girls has been FUN!

What have you been doing with your time? We’ve been going outside! Sometimes people ask us what we do in the “off season” and we wonder what they’re talking about… There is no off season!! We go outside all the time, it’s just a question of what we wear and how long we stay out!

The Eagle Hike was beautiful.

In February we did two Eagle Hikes – it was BEAUTIFUL! We saw lots of eagles and enjoyed amazingly warm and sunny weather as well as some wonderful company on the trail. We hiked a three mile shoreline section of the Perry Lake Trail. 20170211_154030

This Dirty Dude hiked the whole way – 3 Miles – on the Eagle Hike!

In March,we enjoyed two events. The Thunder Ridge Three Mile was awesome.

The weather was wonderful and signs of spring were starting to pop. After the hike, we enjoyed time around the campfire and a tasty meal followed by S’Mores!  Yummy!

We actually had some cold weather and a bit of snow just in time for the March Madness Hike! It was a big fluffy snow.

It was fairly warm and the snow made it beautiful! We enjoyed about 7 miles on the Perry Lake Trail.

April first took us to the Kansas University Field Station Trails for our Fools Day Hike. We had a good day on the trail and professional photographer Heather O’Neal and a Dirty Girl brought her camera along and used her mad skills to document our morning!

It was a gorgeous day on the trail with lush greens and new spring growth. The trail was also rich with good conversation, observation of nature and development of new and old friendships. Time in nature is always well spent and enriching in surprising ways.
