Children's Garden at the Kiln

This is a little hike I took the preschool girls on back in November. It has pathways leading all over, and it's just the right size for little kids.

It's on your way to Oak Grove through Leeds. It's fun, educational, and easy to do as a lone adult with three little girls and one baby boy. (No strollers.)

Make sure to start the walk with a good partner.
Stop to read the signs. They tell all about the local plants and vegetation.
Go down some stairs and across a bridge.And this is what you'll find... A huge beehive-shaped kiln. It was built in the late 1800's by Italian immigrants working at Silver Reef. (It's really cool to see, and I'll bet you didn't know it was there! I didn't.) This is what it looks like on the inside. Looking up to the sky!

Of course, you've got to end the trip with a good picnic. And guess what? There's a table for just that!
