Hiking at Lake Mead

March 04, 2017

What an awesome hike! The kids totally powered through about 4.5 miles with me (according to my FitBit anyway). They were EXHAUSTED at the end. I carried Raina for maybe 2/10 of a mile or so after she scraped her knee but other than that they really held their own. What a gorgeous view!

"mama, you pick me up now?"

"a real live avalanche!?!?"
