7 Miles!

We went for another hike today (Sunday).  This time we went to Waldo Canyon.  I had never been there before.  The trail is a big loop & it’s right around 7 miles.  7 miles may not seem like a lot for most of you.  But this was definitely the most I’ve done in about a year.  My back & hips held up really well!  Very exciting. Wow, that makes me sound old. 

=)

The first part of this trail was through lots of big trees.

Doug brought his camera along, so *gasp* there are pictures of me in this post, too.

Pretty sure the Bug drank half of the water we brought along with us.  He loves drinking out of a Camelbak.

Family photo op.

Who needs fancy trekking poles when you have the handle to an old shovel?  It is Earth Day weekend, after all.  =)

Making the magic happen (or trying):

This next picture was taken after we got home…. Looks like someone was taking notes. 

This is the picture I was working on… a 180 degree panorama of the valley we were hiking around.

I love all of these family photos! But the Bug is distracted in every. single. one.

You hike & hike & hike & just like that, you pop out near a road.

I love these jewels of wilderness & open space in the midst of (or right outside of) the city.
