52 Hike Challenge ~ Hike 15: Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge

Ankeny 3 @ Mt. Hope Chronicles

Saturday, March 17th, the four kids and I met up with Holly and Ivy at Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge. This time, Shannon and her girls, Rilla and Sweden, were able to join us! We didn’t realize that part of the trail is closed until March 31st, so this was a short, but novel, hike on the boardwalk across the wetlands.

Two of my kids got in a fight. One of them ended up with a goose-egg bruise on his cheek. The other huffed back to the truck and didn’t finish the hike. Good times.

We love Ankenny, and walked there for my birthday last year, in fact. :) We were discussing visiting next Sunday for Easter, but I worried much of it would still be underwater-- I'm glad I saw this in time! Thanks ;)
