Wind Cave Hike

April 11, 2012
Wind Cave Hike, Usery Mountain Park

During Jacob's vacation, we decided to go on our first family hike. We chose the Wind Cave hike. I had hear d a lot about it and really wanted to try it out. Once we started the trail, we quickly realized that we were definitely not taking our stroller and lugging it up the mountain. It was fairly difficult at times, but a fun challenge. Talmage hiked the entire mountain both up and down. It totaled 3.2 miles of hiking. Since we couldn't bring a stroller, Jacob and I alternated holding Emma. It was challenge but we did have fun. The view was amazing!
