National Trails Day Hike…

Sorry about the little hiatus last week. I always have a hard time keeping up with posts when traveling. Not so easy finding wireless with a toddler in tow.

But I am back…

Saturday was National Trails Day and, of course, we had to participate.

With the temperatures in the 90’s what better way to hike than to choose a trail that runs in a creek full of water, mud, frogs, snakes and mini waterfalls?  Options for water in the desert are slim but here in Moab we have a few. J-Man had never been on this hike and it is quite easy so it was a simple choice. The whole family went along including J-Man’s uncle.

Fun is coming to an end.

All the fun wore him out. He had to hitch a ride back.

Were you able to enjoy National Trails Day? If not, did you spend time outside?


  1. It looks like you all had a beautiful day! The creeks look like a lot of fun.

  2. We love playing with water on our nature adventures, too. (It becomes especially important now that summer is here.) We spent quite a bit of time playing in a water this weekend, too, while visiting a new-to-us botanic garden.

    • Water can definitely make summertime more fun. Especially, on the HOT days. Instead of staying outside the kids can still run and play. Thanks for sharing.
