Yesterday we met our homeschool group at Elk Island Park for a fun afternoon by the lake. We used the picnic shelter up on the hill, and had two fires going to keep us all warm and toasty! Lorraine had planned a fabulous scavenger hunt and the children split in to groups and headed off to find everything - trying to be the first team back!
We had smores and snakes over the fire and then went on a walk around the boardwalk before heading home via the Bison Trail.

Astotin Lake surrounded by Fall colour:
The bison were rutting and it was fun to watch and listen to them battle it out from so close!
Some just lazily watched the fights:
