Our new traction cleats have been a huge success. The maiden climb was to the top of Waterfall Canyon to see the frozen falls. I don't know why it didnt occur to me that you could do such a thing. So far we considered hiking a warmer weather activity. This was just magical though and has opened all sorts of new doors for us.
The little girls both got point and shoot cameras for Christmas so I borrowed one of theirs for the hike:
You can see who got a Mom and Dad date this time. : ) It's so much fun to spend special activity time with one or two and it is also super fun to for the others to spend fun time doing something with an older sibling at home. They are all individuals.
Here it is up close! It was well below freezing this day so no worries just yet but I wouldn't want to hike this closer to spring thaw.
We were told the easiest way down is um..... seated. Brendan was all in for that idea and slid as long and far as he could.
I hope midwinter is as bright and shining and full of new ideas for you!
