A couple weekends back, we took advantage of the gorgeous January weather (and the plateau behind our house) to take the kids for a short hike. The views were stunning (I love the snow covered mountains in the distance), and the kids had a great time.
I was on "alert" the whole time because at the entrance to the trail there's a sign that says, "Mountain Lion sighted. Be cautious with children and pets!" Um, ok. Anyone know what you're supposed to do if you see a mountain lion??
Thankfully we did NOT see any mountain lions (phew!). About halfway through, I stepped in some old muddy tire tracks and twisted my ankle and knee. It wasn't bad, but it made the hills a bit more challenging. Reagan, Bailey and I went as far as we could, and Brian took Skylar a little farther up.
We loved getting out and enjoying the day (and the kids slept great that night!).
