Hikes With the Girls

Standard

One morning I woke up and decided that hiking sounded a lot better than my “To Do” list. I’d bookmarked a few hikes that looked like fun from here, so I printed off directions, packed some snacks and we drove off.

It was exciting to try something new! Our first stop was the trail head to Rocky Mouth Falls. The crazy part about this hike is that it starts in town. You hike up these gorgeous stairs, walk through an impressively neighborhood and then go through a narrow path between two houses.

It’s clearly marked, so we’re not hiking in the wrong place. Right from the start it’s beautiful!

The girls surprised me- we really didn’t have to stop much at all! They hiked it all by themselves!

The rocks here were incredible! We loved climbing around! (This one was like a comfy chair!)

Alison could hear the waterfall and pointed the way!

We made it! This hike was short (less than a mile round trip) and spectacular. It was so beautiful- it was almost like we had wondered into Lord of the Rings.

Even on the way back we stopped to check out huge, mossy boulders.

Our next hike was Lisa Falls- also another quick hike, less than a mile.

The cool thing about this hike is that the trail was covered in caterpillars!

We had so much fun and it was so nice to try something new!
