The colors are amazing.
They always make me catch my breath.
Went up the mountain a couple weekends ago.
We did a hike we had done many many times when the kiddos were little.
It was actually the last hike we did before moving to Nebraska.
I must say the trail was a piece of cake compared to the last time. It was more like a walk in a park this time. We got to a spot that I vividly remember stopping to hand out snacks so the kids could keep going when they were little. This time it would have been dumb to stop for a break. ha.
I couldn't help but resist doing a few THEN and NOW pictures from the same hike.
(I've always loved pics from the back as we hike.)
(Notice the change of order.)
(The point where they needed a break.)
No break - instead they hopped on the rocks; we later found out we shouldn't have been on them - glad we saw that sign AFTER the fun.
On our way home we hit Bridal Falls - another place we hiked when they were young.
