Yesterday we took an official family outing - with the dogs and everything. We loaded up the ranger and drove up by Navajo Lake (about 40 minutes from our house). The leaves have started changing and are breathtaking in some areas! We went on a ranger drive through some beautiful scenery, and ended up at a trailhead for Cascade Falls. I think it said it was .7 miles to the falls. So we hiked to the falls and it was beautiful! The weather has cooled off quite a bit, so as we drove we were pretty chilly, but after hiking we warmed up. After our hike we had a picnic lunch and drove back to where we'd parked the car. It was so much fun to be together, enjoying nature, and creating memories. I can't wait for more Saturday outings like this as Gabe gets older!
