The Cradle of Forestry is a pretty cool place. It is a indoor/outdoor museum of the life and preservation of the forest. The kids loved doing a scavenger hunt for all types of things found in the forest and products made from the forest.
We then saw a most “interesting” movie about the forest and how each of us has a responsibility to see that is it managed properly. The movie was seriously good times, with magical seeds, forest spirits, and even a bit of the black smoke monster from Lost. After that we took a tour of some of the original buildings from the forestry school established in the late 1800s/early 1900s.
Along the way, Nathan needed to take a little bathroom break for what he referred as a growler.
We’re thinking maybe he needed a little of this to help him out:
After touring the Cradle of Forestry we took a short trip down the road to Sliding Rock, where the water is frigid and the slide is fast!
The facial expressions just before they hit the water were awesome!
Look at little Layton as Nathan pops him up out of the water:
Crazy thing is that I think he went down more times than anybody! He loved it!
