This Summer, we have tried our best to take advantage of what has seemed like endless glorious weather. A couple weekends back we spent the entire day hiking the 11.5 miles to Pratt Lake. Aside from the air being hazy from all the fires in the North Cascades, it was a wonderful day spent together as a family up in the mountains. I have to give my husband major kudos because he not only hiked, but carried Jasper on his back almost the entire way. Since Pratt Lake is such a long hike it deters a lot of people. As a result, we found ourselves alone most of the time on the trail. It was a scenic hike where we passed through several different types of landscapes and encountered endless types of terrain. It was a beautiful hike, albeit long and one I am eager to do again as an overnight adventure.
Our little hiker, Jasper. In his few short months of life he has gone on countless hikes and has logged impressive mileage. We are proud he loves the outdoors so much and is eager to accompany Mom and Dad on our many adventures.
Jasper often falls asleep in his carrier while we are on the trail. We love the kick stand feature which allows him to continue to sleep once we stop.
I try my best to always ask people to take our photograph as a family. I know these will be some of my most treasured memories as our children grow.
Signs of Fall are all around us when we go hiking. Seeing this beautiful foliage makes me excited for all the wonderful traditions the Autumn brings.
