Valley of the Sun, Pt. IV

 While hiking the impressive Camelback Mountain gave Peter and Pops a thrill, that hike was a little too fantastic for some of our wee ones. Jane did admirably and had a number of war-wounds as proof of her attempt. Us girls hiked just a portion and let the boys finish that trek on their own. 

However, one of our most favorite family-style hikes was actually the easy-to-get-to "Hole in the Rock." A kid-friendly hike with a fantastic vista and lots of fun nooks and crannies to explore.

 We spent more than an hour up here trekking about, making up silly games, and just generally enjoying the view.

There was much to make one gaze in wonder.
