I plan on seeing a lot of different hikes, trails, and outdoor happenings this year. And guess what!? You are all invited to join me on the experiences. This week the family and I put in around 5 miles hiking at Eden Valley Refuge just outside of Baldwin, Iowa.

The area offers a refreshing and natural experience for visitors. The limestone bluffs and forested hills teem with plant and animal life (pictures of some follow, others were to fast to get, like deer, hawks, and vultures).The trails were easy and inviting, and maps of the area were easy to follow.
