Salt Lake Unschoolers: Seven Peaks

Awesome day at Seven Peaks!

We were there for 6 and 1/2 hours!

Rowan took a nice nap on the lazy river.  I wish I had captured a picture of the cuteness~

Bells Canyon Hike


Our Anniversary celebration continued today with a hike to Bells Canyon Falls~
We went home and grabbed Rowan from Josh and headed up the canyon. 

 The lower reservoir~ So beautiful~

 Someone's getting sleepy~

 He was soon napping~
 We made it to water and the cool shade~

 Higher and higher we go~
 The falls!  That trail was from hell.  Stair stepping boulders for miles with a 3400 elevation climb.  But we did it! 20,000 plus steps for the day!
 Beautiful and cool~ 

 So happy~

 Testing the water~
 Yep it's cold~

 My sweet, silly boy~

 Rock thrower~

 View from the falls~
 He loves him so~
 The Mountain Jays were hilarious!

 I love their fluffy heads~

They wanted our backpack~
 We played for an hour and started the treck down.  We were lucky to see two huge snakes slithering off into the brush. 


 Oh so beautiful~
 We are so fortunate~

Then we got fish tacos for dinner! Oh so yummy~

It was another amazing day~
