Family day in the Canyon



We are so lucky that our road continues right on through the canyon and National Forest. This weekend we decided to go for a little family adventure in the canyon with the dog, since she finally got all of her tags and is free to roam about with us.

We went to this perfect little spot by the water that we found with our friend Shirine on her visit out last summer. The water is a safe depth and rush at that point and there are logs to cross and mountains to climb. All of which we did. It made for the best Saturday of the year, hands down!

We hiked up a pretty steep mountain side and saw a ton of evidence of deer, so Joe took Hannah Jane scouting the next morning at 6. The 2 of them climbed the adjacent mountain and watched the deer from across the canyon. They saw 11 deer and Hannah Jane woke me and the boys up with an armload of bones that she found on their hike. I love weekends!
