Petroglyph Canyon

March 22, 2011

Dear Children,
     You usually get out of school at 3:15.  Last Friday your Papa called me at 2:30 and informed me that if I  wanted to go on a hike I needed to get you kids right away because we were loosing daylight.  This is his idea of planning.  Very last minute, grab some food, throw the gear in the car... and we're off!

Since Atticus no longer fits in our baby carrier, but he's too little to keep up with us, we've recently started stuffing him in a backpack.  He loves it!

We went to Petroglyph Canyon...

and saw lots of petroglyphs.

We're slowly trying to get you all ready for overnight backpacking trips.  Jonas got a backpack for Christmas and he now wears it with a light amount of gear when we go out hiking.

What we're really trying to do is raise some mountain goats.  We're well on our way.

The view on the drive out of the canyon:

After the hike we went to get the best frozen yogurt ever, Red Mango, which was followed by dinner.  A great day indeed.  Love, Mama


  1. We can't wait to go on our first hike, but there is still so much snow on our mountains!

  2. Looks like so much fun! Can't wait to see posts after you're able to do your overnighter. :)
