Waterfall Canyon





Two weeks ago our little family hiked up to Waterfall Canyon. It is probably 4+ miles round trip. I INSISTED on going that day, even though the weather was not the greatest. I really wanted to go before we couldn't go anymore, so this was the day. Cam tried to talk me out of it, he said it was going to start raining and we would get soaked, but being an optimist (and a boss) I said we were going to be fine.

We started out and the weather was fine. I started carrying Hannah in the Kelty for the "easy" part and then Cam carried her during the "goat climbing" part. The hike was a little more difficult than we anticipated-but by this time we HAD to finish!

We finally made it to the top, and the waterfall was beautiful and worth the hike. I had packed a lunch and we sat down to eat and it started pouring rain. We immediately started heading down the hill and the trail was soaked, muddy, and slippery. Everyone but Hannah (protected by the rain hood on the Kelty) got soaking wet! I will admit for everyone here to read this....Cam was right and I was wrong-it was a bad day to go on a hike. :)

That looks like an awesome hike. I would love to do it. I think stuff like that (rainy hike) is what makes life interesting and fun. You will always remember it because it rained and you all got soaked and you probably went home, got dry and drank hot chocolate as a family. Sound like fun!

That looks so pretty! So fun to get out as a family and do something like that.
