Mother’s Day Hike

According to Nathan, ‘normal’ moms want to go to a movie on Mother’s Day, not hike 13.5 miles, climbing into and out of a 500-foot canyon twice. Who wants to sit in a theater when I can be out on the trail with these crazies? Besides, ‘normal’ is not a word that has been used in our house in a looooong time.

Hope all the moms out there had a wonderful day!!

Ready to head out

Just keep walking…

500 foot Alamo Canyon. We went down and up, twice.

Yup, we’re going down there!

Beautiful Alamo Canyon

Company on the trail

Potsherds out at Yapashi Pueblo

With 350 rooms, 6 kivas, and a reservoir, Yapashi was the largest settlement in Bandelier.

Stone Lions

Flowers were blooming everywhere!

  1. I am so with you!! Heading out toward Utah tomorrow on a 3 week road trip. Not sure I’ll be hiking as much as 13.5 miles in a day, but I hope to get some 8-10 milers in.

  2. you can only be a normal Mom if you have a normal family.. and yours  has never  been normal since the day you packed up your home into Waldo and set off across the States and giving your children an education to be envied by many….So cheers to walking 13+ miles…what a lovely way to spend a day and you did it as a family…love ya
