STORY COUNTY: Candy Cane Hike at Hickory Grove Park


This is the time of year when I look for events to motivate us to get outside.  Today that led us to a candy cane hike at Hickory Grove Park, just east of Ames.  137 candy canes were hidden along both sides of the trail and whichever group found the most won a prize.  We didn't even get close, finding only 103 of the candy canes.  However, my kids were happy with the hot chocolate provided after the hike.
