End of September, 2013
|L-R, Anna (10), Gabe (9), William (7), Cathy (13)|
|Check it out. This is a beautiful, easy, well groomed and maintained "Sissy Trail."|
But we liked it anyway.
|The best hiking excursions are the ones where we learn a little something... And the beauty of home schooling is|
we get to do this all the time, whenever we get a wild hair. And I don't have to fill out permission slips.
|Looking one way. (Uh, south?)|
|Looking the other way. (I'm guessing this is basically sorta due north...)|
|They have guided boat tours (and fishing excursions) here along the|
Gunnison. I would love to do this someday.... Dan? Dan?
|Me. Always watchful.|
|Cathy. Always game.|
|Anna. Always silly.|
|William. Always William.|
|Gee. What do a bunch of children do to entertain themselves on the banks of a river?|
|They throw hundreds of pounds of rocks in. At every pause on the trail, every chance they get. SPLASH!!|
|HA! I got one in!|
|We liked the reflection of water in this little grotto. Though the picture, as always, doesn't do it justice.|
