Camelback Mountain

Okay, I was nervous to hike Camelback Mountain on Thursday. I'd gone for a run on Monday morning, and really overheated, and I was sure I'd heat stroke out on the hike.

But Keith had thought it through, and planned our hike for 7am.

The happy hikers.

The early start combined with the overcast sky resulted in a perfect hiking morning. We even had some rain early on.

I want to say we made it to the top without breaking a sweat,

But that would be a lie.

I love a hike with a destination. Tops of mountains being my favourite.

Chloe had the same exhilarating experience she enjoyed last time. We need to take this girl on more hikes!

Chloe specifically requested I take a picture of the distance markers.

I just love the variety in this hike.

(And for the record, I never got ahead of Avery or Carmen -  

These pictures I took from above are from our descent.)

Carmen liked one stretch so much she decided to do it twice!

It seems so hard to believe that the kids have grown so much. Can we really have been reading each others' blogs for so long? That was fun to see the photo from 3 years ago.
