Family Time: Roaring Fork Creek Trailhead (Medicine Bow National Forest- Wyoming) Part 1

At about 21 miles away from Glendo (if I got my calculations right), Medicine Bow National Forest was our destination yesterday afternoon. Originally we planned to make it to the top of the Laramie Peak, but with kids in tow and no proper kid carrier, we decided to take another route and headed to the Roaring Fork Creek Trailhead and on to the Goochie Park. At first it was an easy hike, but the closer we got to the pass, the steeper and challenging the trail was. We made a few stops to relax and get some snacks while the kids explore a little bit. It was a beautiful day to go for a hike with the family and one great workout.

Must have been an Elk skull?
Don't worry, we didn't take the skull with us. We put it back where we found it. 
I hope you enjoyed watching the photos. Have you taken on a hiking trip with the family or friends lately? Do share! 


  1. oh, my! I can't imagine 21 miles...but it seems like you guys had an awesome adventure. It was worth it after all.

    Thanks for dropping by mamiAdin!

  2. That seem like a fun adventure! I wish I was there - be able to experience it! HAHA! Though, I'm sure I'll be so tired I don't even know if I can keep up, HAHA!

  3. Such a wonderful place and wonderful day. Thank you for posting the photos so we can all enjoy the experience. I miss the mountains and sure love reliving your adventures with the family.

    1. Tim told me about all of your adventures together back then. I am sure you miss those times. I am just glad Tim's not all that crazy these days anymore, now that he has a family. Sometimes he can get a bit crazy and bushwhacks and stuff, but a bit tamed down. hahaha... :)
