Today my heart was extremely happy. I got to explore a new trail with my little family and my mountain chicks sisters. We ventured out to Flagstaff, which is a three hour drive for us but oh so worth it. The temps in Flagstaff are much cooler then in Phoenix, so having to drive a ways away to escape the heat was not an issue. I haven’t been able to do a hike lately with Jack since it’s been crazy hot. By 7am it’s already 90 degrees! So not a whole lot of trail action for Jack and mommy. But today we got to get out together! The whole family – Lonnie, the pups, and Jack Attack! I was too excited!
We met up with the group at 9am at the Inner Basin Trailhead, located in Locket Meadow. After a three hour drive the boys and I were all ready to get movin and hit the trail! I definitely want to return in the fall to see the aspens change with the season.Took us about 4 hours to finish and I’m sure glad we finished when we did because it started to rain, hail and then thunder towards the end! Eek! I was so incredibly proud of Oliver and Oscar as this was there longest hike to date. Jack for being a trooper and even coming out of the hiking carrier at one point to do some actual hiking himself. And mostly proud of Lonnie for hiking with Jack for majority of the trail. Carryingj Jack is no joke.
Another successful adventure with Jack!
