Short Hike at Hall Ranch
I am way behind on posting pictures again! This is from the week before Easter – we tested out our new hiking backpack at Hall Ranch, which is just 20 minutes away from our house – just outside of Lyons.
Here’s Isaac, slathered in sunscreen and getting ready to embark:
Starting off on the trail. Blue skies, sunny, and dry:
Warning! Mountain Lion Habitat!
Two dudes in their sunglasses.
First wildlife sighting – a bunny!
We were hiking at the end of the day, around 430, so the sun was setting and making all the spring flowers glow.
I was trying to have Jamie tip his head to one side so I could get a picture of him and Isaac at the same time…but Isaac thought it was hilarious to tip his head exactly the same way as Jamie’s – so he was always hiding!
Isaac got sick of riding and decided to do some trail running!
Scampering down the hill!
Scampering across a little bridge
More wildlife! We saw a herd of about 20 deer!
They were not afraid of us. I was pretty sure a mountain lion was going to jump out at any moment and eat one of them! But it didn’t happen…
Then Isaac had an accident and had to finish the hike sans pants. We hadn’t carried in an extra pair.
