Donut Falls Today

We hiked up to Donut Falls today with the boys. The road to the trail was closed so it added an extra 2 miles to the hike because we couldn't drive up to the trailhead. We ended up walking to it. The actual hike I believe is 3/4 of a mile one way.

There was still alot of slushy snow so the boy's feet were pretty cold and wet on our way back down. Other than that the weather was warm. It's deceitful to see all that snow. You may have wondered why we weren't dressed in coats, boots, gloves, and hats but we were actually really warm besides the boys feet.

The kids were troopers. I'm pretty amazed that they hiked as much as they did. I wouldn't recommend going up with small kids until the snow is completely melted.

(I apologize to all those with RSS feeds. I had to tinker a lot to get this stinky slide show to work the way I wanted it to)

Nancy, your photography skills have been shining through a lot more and more in these latest posts. I'm glad to see you unbury a talent for us!
What a fun hike to do. I was actually surprised to see you in shorts at first because I was thinking it would be cold because we had such a cold tie last weekend in the mountains.

wow. i can't believe how photogenic those kids are. and i'm guessing that the vibrancy in the photos are due to some nancy wizardry.

That looks like it was a blast (other than the cold feet)!

Nancy, I just have to tell you - I love your blog. It is so real and just like you. And I always love seeing your new pics - they are great!

donut falls is one of our favorite places to hike to with the boys.... but yes, if you cant drive to the trailhead... OUCH!

if you continue up the canyon to brighton, there are some AWESOME trails that are doable for little ones, like Dog Lake and Lake Mary.... and sooooooo beautiful!

maybe we should coordinate efforts
