Summer Fun {9}

Family Hike! July 25th (marked off the summer list)

We hiked up to Lake Solitude. For those who might like to know where this is, it's up Big Cottonwood Canyon - starting at Brighton Ski Resort and Silver Lake and then taking the trail heading off from the lake. This was a very nice moderate 3 mile out-and-back hike. Some challenging parts, but nothing scary and not too hard for the kids. I like having a destination to reach when hiking, rather than just "let's follow this trail for and hr and turn around," so getting to the lake was nice. There was a cave that enthralled the kids. We saw a mama and baby moose from across the lake. Abigail did some meditating. We ate snacks. The kids chased some squirrels. We found a patch of snow (in July!). And Miss Elisabeth conked out on the way home.

A great summer family outing!

Counting this one a success. :)
