Summer Fun: Hitting the Trail.

Here are some pictures from a hike our family took last week.  It was a 6.6 mile round trip hike, up a creek to a lovely little alpine lake.  We came prepared to have lunch on the trail, and brought our water shoes to splash about in the lake when we got there.  Let me tell you, that water was COLD!  The kids had fun, though, and handled the hike really well.  We weren’t sure how long they could go without whining, but we didn’t hear a single complaint until a thunderstorm came up on our way back down about a half mile from the trail-head.  Luckily we made it back to the car before the real downpour hit us.

Here we are along the trail.  Yes, E-boy rode most of the way.

Here are the kids at the little lake, which we came to about half a mile before reaching the bigger lake.

And this was our destination:

Here are the kids splashing around in that cold, cold water:
