Trail walk & Bug Catching

We love the outdoors, soon enough it will be cold and snowy again and not able to get out doors for 5 months straight. During Spring time I bought a year round state park pass, it got used a lot this summer. One of the things we like to do at the state park is go trail walking. Its beautiful and Caleb gets to bring his bug sucker and suck up bugs and spit them into a bug dome you can carry. This trip we found some very interesting beetles.

Caleb and I were walking on a path and noticed a bird that was gulping down something from the ground. We got closer to find out it can un-covered a beetle nest and not just any but officially the largest beetles I have ever seen!! We screamed and squealed and caught one.


  1. WOW! This beetle is really something! That's awesome you like nature. At my place Summer dissappeared totally and it's cold and rainy. I wish I could go trail walking and enjoy beautiful weather:)

  2. Whoa! That IS some serious bug catching! Huge beetle.
    A few weekends ago, we went to a nephew's birthday party and all the kids were catching and releasing dragonflies! It was fun. I wish I'd gotten pics.

  3. Our family loves the outdoors as well. Our favorite hobby (geocaching) gets us outdoors to new and interesting places that we never knew existed. Alot of them take us to beautiful trails like the one you took a walk on.
