Fossil Springs Hiking Trip

Scott took Sydney and Sloane on a hiking trip to Fossil Springs. They went with Scott's brothers (Rick and Jay) and their cousins. It was an easy 4 miles down to Fossil Springs but a hard 4 miles up the next day! While at Fossil Springs, everyone swam, swung on rope swings, played in the water caves, jumped off cliffs and had a great time exploring! It was Sloane's first family backpacking trip, and, with the exception of being too cold or too hungry, I think she had a good time. Here are some pictures of the event:

Everyone in good spirits at the start of the hike!

Sydney ready to take the plunge while cousin Jake waits for his turn!

Sloane "The Fish" showing us how its done!

The cool magical cave, or "Gollum's cave".

The water was cool and clear. Quinn, Sloane, Jake and Sydney in the cave.

"Dad, I'm hungry!"

Sloane, Quinn and Cole's friend at the waterfall.

Halfway up the trail. Sydney and Sloane are a little tired from skipping up the trail singing "Zippity Do Da"!

Triumphant smiles as another hike is conquered! I think Sloane is already asleep!
