On a hike this past Sunday the whole fam got out to enjoy the fall colors. Little g did good in the pack, probably because Mountain Dad had her this time. In the pack with me is another story. The trail we did was the Sundance trail to Stewart Falls. I love hiking this trail, even though I have yet to make it to the falls with the tots. It’s nice because there’s a river that runs alongside for a while, a great distraction for tired tiny hikers. This time of year is especially nice since the colors exploded on the scene. Looking at the mountainside, it’s as if Monet painted an amazing impressionist painting using treetops as brushstrokes.
Big E, little g and I walked on the Stewart Falls hike yesterday to enjoy the beautiful fall colors. There are few places on earth as lovely as the mountains at Sundance at any time of year, but in the fall it is spectacular. Just driving in the canyon you can see exploding reds, oranges and yellows set against the green if the pines. The colors alone deserve a trip even without enjoying the fresh air, the bubbling brook, or the laughter of my little kids.
My family had a big reunion at Laguna Beach, CA. First you must know that I came from a large family which has grown exponentially. Little g is less than a year old and is one of four babies born in the last 10 months. With such a large group it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of cousins.
We loved our trip! Mountain Dad loved body surfing, swimming and body boarding. Big E loved cousins and digging in the sand. Little g loved grandma, and trying to eat the sand which Mountain Mom did NOT like. Overall we loved the sand, sun and family. Can’t wait till next year! Continue reading “Seashore Babies”
