Had a great weekend hiking! My husband and I got up early and went to my old "hang-out" at Peter's Canyon. We brought our two girls - Sophia (1 1/2) and Michaela (16).
I was great to be back home! I loved the smell of early morning on the trail. Peter's Canyon is not a big place. But it was perfect for those morning runs on the trail but close to home....I miss it, it was great to be back!
Peter's Canyon was perfect for me again (even though it is 5 years later since the last time I was here!) . It was the perfect place to take my baby girl Sophia on her first hike...where she actually did some hiking. She did awesome! Sure we carried her on our shoulders most of the time. But she loved watching the birds, pointing to the bushes, and running downhill.
Michaela (our 16 year old) did pretty good too! She complained a little in the beginning, but wasn't one to turn down a challenge....she ran/walked/persevered up to the top of the steepest hill at Peter's Canyon - no small task!
We spent a little over an hour hiking, talking, sprinting here and there and getting reaquainted with an active lifestyle.
I love the smells, love the people, love the environment, love the burn of being outdoors and working out.
IT'S GREAT TO BE BACK!
