While my parents were here in February we decided to hike South Mountain. It's not quite like hiking in Utah. It's actually very hot, sunny and dusty. But I guess hiking in Arizona can be an interesting experience. The scenery is different anyway.
Here we are at the trailhead
Grandma, Brynlie & Lauren on the trail
Hiking up the hill
Here we are at a rest stop
Lauren taking a rest
Brynlie had some help but did really well for a 2 year old

We climbed up the top of the mountain (more like a large hill)
I was really suprised at how well the kids did. We hiked for about 2 hours.
My dad reminded me of Gandalf with his tall walking stick
I love this picture. Jason's looking out on the Phoenix Valley trying to see if he can spot his work. Brynlie makes this cute face a lot.
Having a little snack
Brynlie didn't like the pretzels.
We had a fun time. It was nice to get out and enjoy nature, even if it is dry and dusty nature. :)
