On the weekend before school started, we FINALLY headed up north to hike Hiji Falls.
It was a wonderful day! No squabbles on the way out the door, no “hangry” episodes, no whining, no screaming fests in the back of the car…GLORIOUS!! And both kids hiked all the way up with no complaints!
It rained…but with none of the above mentioned issues…I was elated! The rain even reminded us of Oregon a bit!
Ps. Please ignore the quality of the photos. They are all from Adam’s Android!
Such a fun day! The hike back was a bit faster because Adam carried G and we got E to move fast by counting all the stairs. Fast hiking AND math practice? win-win!
The cool thing about Hiji is that you can camp right there at the beginning of the hike, right on the river! It’s a nice set up with bathrooms and decks set up for tents or yurts. The river at the camping area is calm and shallow; perfect for littlies to swim or explore nature. I wouldn’t try it in the summer though because of all the mosquitos!
