My kids are troopers! Rebecca decided to take them back up to the same area the next day following the scavenger hunt hike to try some harder hiking. The destinations were Dark Hollow Falls (70' 1.4 miles, rated very steep) and Lewis Falls (81' 2 miles, rated moderately steep and rocky with a stream crossing). That's right, just her and the kids. Because Emma automatically got to ride and the jogging stroller wouldn't go so far, the other three had no choice but to walk and climb.
|About 5 minutes or less into hike number 1, Gabe tripped and hit his head on a rock. There was quite a bit of blood but truly it was a small hole. After starting to clean him up, Rebecca managed to get him to smile for a picture. :)|
|There was lots of climbing using hands and feet for the kids. Also, there was lots of slapping away flies as you can see Gabe doing here.|
|There were a larger variety of wildflowers and many butterflies to watch. God's creation is just beautiful!|
