murray peak

Chris' parents came to visit this past weekend. Chris' dad had built a desk for our loft and the kids were anxious to see it. It is beautiful! Friday night we went out to dinner and then frozen yogurt for dessert.

While it was not late when we returned home, I think a week of early wake ups (thanks to the time change) had taken their toll. :)

On Saturday morning, Cameron and I headed to the desert for another hike with my dad. It was such a fun hike. We had done Murray Hill before, but had not made it to the peak. Cameron REALLY wanted to complete this one, so our goal was to make it to the top. Since it was six miles, we prepared him that it might not happen...but it did!  Here is a 10 second video of us reaching the top.

Usually hiking clubs volunteer to build picnic tables on many of the summits. It's such a great feeling to get to the top and just relax and enjoy the view. :)

Taking a break on the way down...

Here I am reading our directions.  There were numerous "goat trails" around the mountain which can make it difficult to get to where you want to go. :)

We were pooped when we made it back down, but felt so accomplished! I can't wait for the next one!
