loriev I love a good country road although I had to get back in the car pretty quick since a not so happy looking country dog was fast approaching. 6mon

loriev Family hike. 6mon
  •   joyfulroots Fun! Is this on Mount Lemmon? 6mon
  •   loriev Hi @joyfulroots, Mt. Lemon is beautiful but this is near the rim in Payson, AZ. It's an easy hike since we had the kiddos with us. Mt. Lemon is about 3 hours south of here. 6mon
  •   joyfulroots Hi! Oh...I love Payson! Hopefully I can get back up there sometime and try this hike :) Payson is about 5.5 hours from us. 6mon
  •   loriev It's a great family hike. The picture I posted a few days ago of my family walking across a creek on a large fallen log was taken about halfway through that hike. At the end you are rewarded with a creek, small waterfall, lots of pretty flowers, large climbing boulders, and a small pond. Not to mention lots of wild raspberries to eat (during the summer) along the way. Takes about 45 min each way (if you are going slow with kids). :) @joyfulroots 6mon
  •   joyfulroots So fun! It looks totally gorgeous. There are so many amazing hikes up there and I will have to add this to my list of hikes I want to do. Have you been to natural bridge state park? I thought that was amazing! 6mon
  •   loriev Yes I have been to natural bridge state park but it's been a few years. Maybe I am due for another trip; it is amazing. @joyfulroots 6mon
  •   joyfulroots It is amazing!! 6mon
  •   loriev @joyfulroots have you done the fossil creek hike? It's really nice and at the end you get to go swimming and can even jump off a cliff with a waterfall, if you are brave :). 6mon

loriev Almost walked right by this sweet momma-to-be on a hike last week. She was super brave or maybe just dedicated to her eggs; gave me a little look but stayed put while I snapped this pic and moved on. 7mon
