When we learned that the weather is going to be an unpleasant one next week, we decided to get out of the house and explore this particular area where it has those caves. We were there before, during the fall, but we didn't really explore the area much because it was too late in the afternoon when we got there. This time, we had plenty of time to go hiking, but we didn't make it all the way to the cave. Instead, we explored above it and we found out how neat the area actually was. There was a part where you had a great view of the big river, although my pictures don't do justice to how beautiful the view was.
I wish we have the Piggyback Rider already. USPS, please hurry up with my mail already. Hiking will surely be a bit easier with one kid properly in tow.
Harley had a really good time. He was in his element and a chance for him to explore. The best way to keep him off the computer and keeping in touch with reality. This boy came home tired and snoring.
Our little explorer admiring the view. And oh! It was also the day where he decided he wants to wear all brown so he got to pick the clothes he wanted to wear.

Taking a picture of all four of us without a tripod is always a challenge. I have to find a bush or a rock to hold the camera. We have got to get a portable one something that's light. We need to fix that. I also forgot to bring the little videocam (forgot the name) that my sister-in-law gave to my husband on his birthday. It actually takes a decent video and would be perfect for all of our hiking trips.
Rock throwing is always fun.
For people with no proper kid carrier, shoulders will do just fine. Ouch! I sure wasn't up for it today.
A narrow descend.
We found an animal skull on our way back.
I may not be feeling too well, but sure didn't stop us from taking a short afternoon hike. It keeps me from being sick and even thinking about it. It was quite a windy day, too. It is nice to explore new places that isn't too far from home, even just a simple afternoon hike with the family in search for new thrills. I hope everyone's having a great time! Take care, keep safe, and stay warm (if you are experiencing the winter).
