Theler Wetlands

April 13th, 2004 · No Comments

Last week the girls and I visited the Theler Wetlands in Belfair, along with our friends Robin and her family. I took the double stroller and the backpack for the three kids and I found the paths to be faily easy: gravel and boardwalk. Along the side of the trails we saw all kinds of foliage including skunk cabbage (starting to live up to its aromatic name), salmon berry with hot pink blossoms (asking for attention), and two colors of trillium (short-lived wonders of the woods!). One path led out to the edge of Hood Canal where we could look into the salt marsh. A small museum held lots of goodies for the girls: stuffed animals and mounted insects. Perhaps we’ll return one summer night for the bat walk!
