With my husband and our two kids, my sister in law and her 5 boys, and two kid backpacks we set of for a hike in the woods to Cold Water Lake. Uhm, here it is (about 90% of it in this picture) - it's barely big enough to be a pond but I thought this photo turned out ok.
The sides of the mountain were covered in wild geraniums and roses. This photo was my favorite. We were hiking at the wrong time of day for good photos so you'll just have to use your imagination.
I enjoyed holding my nephews tiny hand and helping him down the mountain side. My son didn't want to hold my hand and fell and cut his hand. His daddy carried him the rest of the way along with another nephew on his back in the Kelty kids pack.
