One of our goals for the year is to do more hiking. We have so many wonderful day hikes that we can easily access, and we’d like to try more of them. Unfortunately, for most of the summer the national forests and open space were closed because of wildfires, but most areas have reopened so we’re trying to take full advantage.
Last weekend we hiked to Santa Fe’s closest alpine lake, and it was, of course, beautiful. Here are some scenes from the lake.
And of course, someone managed to get quite dirty!
She slipped into deep muck trying to cross a stream on a slippery log. It didn’t slow her down much, and the girls had a grand time chasing chipmunks while we napped on the edge of the lake.
