Dennis wanted to ride today. I wanted to see aspen trees. The solution!?!? Take the kids for a hike up at Turkey Flats. That way, he could ride while we hiked. We’d hike up the same trail he rode out and would come back on, and when he passed us on the way down we would turn and finish the hike down while he did some recovery.

Everything went as planned. We named a bunch of the flowers and trees, did some bird and bug watching (the bumble bees on the thistles were HUGE). I noticed a lot of rock formations that I hadn’t before. Going slower helps.

Trinity caught a butterfly on a flower. Tim gave me kisses. Connor got tired.
