See that sweet insect that photo bombed the pic?
We had a great time hiking this trail two days in a row. Saturday afternoon started great, then we got to the first reservoir and the thunder cracked (directly over our heads) so loudly we hightailed it back to the truck.
Sunday we started early morning and hiked to the second reservoir, ate lunch, and then hiked out. It was a great day!
Saturday’s hike was beautiful:
Now for Sunday’s hike:
This hike was more challenging than Dawson Butte. E hiked most of it, but several steep parts she hitched a ride. Hiking with an extra 21# kid on you ain’t easy. This might be our go to weekend hike. Mainly, because E slept for three hours afterwards. And we want to see what the 3rd reservoir looks like.
And because this lil gem is only 10 minutes from our front door. It is popular, so it’s not like we were Christopher McCandless from Into the Wild. Or Brad Pitt in Seven Years in Tibet. But it was still nice to get outside.
