An Escape

The National Parks are celebrating their centennial and one part of the fun is that in 2016 there will be 16 free admission days. Monday was the first of the 16 and as it was Martin Luther King Jr day it was also a day off school. Brett unfortunately had to work but the kids and I managed to escape into the mountains for an afternoon hike in the snow.

It was a first for all of us and we had a great time. The kids were convinced we were on an excellent adventure.

We didn't make it all the way to cub lake. It was too cold and too late in the afternoon. I think we'll go up in April when Brett can go with us and we can try again.

Lorelai's favorite thing was finding large boulders to climb and say, "I'm the first girl to ever climb this boulder!" :) There was something about the snow that made it feel like we were the only ones to have ever been there before.
So much fun! I can wait to get out there again.
