My friend recently told me about a local place that is maintained by the Yamhill County Soil and Conservation District. It is called Miller Woods. It's a little place not too far outside of the city of Mcminnville that you can go out and go hiking through. There is a day use fee of $3, but they opened the place to the public today considering that it is Earth Day.
Julie and I went out with the kids and did a nice long hike. I'd say we probably hiked a few miles up and around the trails. I know I am tired, and Daphne is for sure tired. It is just nice to have a local place to go and hang out and enjoy nature without having to drive hours away.
I plan to return more. I'm hoping to stay more fit as these last weeks of this pregnancy roll by. All I can say is that the hike really and truly was a challenge.
Check it out if you are in the area. What a cool local resource. I wish someone had told me about it before last week.
