We hiked to Elephant Rock ( that's what the locals call it, but it's really Big Rock) up Mueller Park Canyon on Saturday. We put on our most mis-matched, colorful clothes, hats and sunglasses and we headed out.
Monson, Laila, Wayne and I all went on the 6+ mile round trip hike.
Laila was so excited. She has been wanting to do this for awhile, but we had to make sure she knew it was a "walk" not a "carry." She is so light weight that it's easy to want to pick her up still....but she is 8, and she walked the entire way. She made sure we all knew it was much harder for her since she had to take two steps for every one of ours.
Laila was sure she could save him.
It was great to climb out onto the rock, up on top, and then relax on the bench. There is a "WAYNE" carved into the bench that Monson gave Wayne a bad time about....vandalism and all. It was a fun family activity.
We topped it off with Costa Vida and Orange Leaf ---mmmmmm!!
