I just loved all the pics, and need a whole post to show them off!
My kids on a bridge that scares me. I am not sure where I was when this was taken…Probably running from it.
Pretty river scene that I missed because it is from the scary bridge.
This woodpecker was unafraid enough to let us watch him for a while when we were both coming and going on the trail. So beautiful!
My kids, taking a break from the uphill climb. I can share here that my son wanted to rock climb. All the way down, he kept finding ‘perfect’ places to climb, rather than stay on the trail. I tried to console him by telling him that on our way back to the parking lot, our hike would be a climb. We walked in a silence for a little while and then he said, ‘that really means we will only be hiking uphill.’ Ah, when they were young and gullible…
Aren’t they cute?
Here is a little tiny bit they could actually climb!! Yay!
My daughter took this picture of a most handsome man! I need to get my hands on him!
In our California History Class, we learned about this trail you can walk from Mexico to Canada. I was so excited when I heard that we could access that same trail just a tenth of a mile up from the falls trail. We couldn’t pass up the photo op!
So cool! Sadly, because of construction, this was about as close as we could get to the falls. We are being positive, though, and saying that it gives us a good excuse to go back in spring!
This is from the other side of the river from the picture just before it.
This picture just cracks me up. I should crop it to get a better view of my boy, but he looks so funny pancaked out in the wilderness. He says he was trying to not scare that woodpecker.
One of the gifts from God I most treasure is a friend willing to walk the trail with me.
This tree was the perfect seat, growing horizontally from the hill before reaching up vertically.
My boy takes a turn in the tree chair.
Our friends with our kids.
Me, too, me too!
