Tapping Trees

Our home school group went to Whitewater State Park for a hands on program learning about maple syrup.

Here Greta is helping to drill a hole in the tree.

A little taste of the dripping sap...the girls could taste no sweetness to it...they said
it tastes the same as water.

Grandpa came along with us....the buckets of sap were pretty heavy...we carried them over to the fire.

Of course eagle-eye Maybelle finds a super cool fossil!!!! We think it is of a baby turtle!

Showing the fossil to a ranger.

Tasting the maple syrup!!!! Delicious!!!!!!!!
