The kids were kind enough to indulge Steve and me with a Fiery Furnace tour... I think this is the fourth time we've done the exact same tour, but we had to show it to the grandparents and, besides, we love it ever-so-much.
Hmm... we may have glazed over the explanations of scrambling and slot traversal when we signed Gramma and Poppop up for the hike.
If we hadn't already been through the hike with each kid in the carrier, I don't think I would have believed that both Steve and Sash could make it through! Way to go, spider-daddy!
Sam is prepared with his backpack, Sasha and Ben with their maps!
The drainage pipes throughout the park provided copious amusement for our kiddos. The rule was that as long as you could see daylight at the other end and it wasn't filled with tumbleweed, you could crawl through. It ended up being the preferred route to cross the road - who needs a crosswalk?
We arrive at Pine Tree Arch - and as Ben promised, climbing abounded
We had such a great mini-family vacation!
