Chataqua Park – Boulder

Had our first hiking trip today to jump start the weekend adventures. The incoming rain, and Matthew’s marathon morning nap, resulted in a small change in plan – we went to Chataqua Park for our hike rather than up to Lyons. Luckily we did beat the rain and made it home before the clouds rolled in. Zach downloaded this hiking app to try out – its a neat idea but I’m a little disappointed in the (very) low quality of the images. 

Lesson learned though – wearing a camel back AND a Boba carrier is not comfy lol… I only made it less than a mile before poor Zach ended up carrying both of our packs. I think we’ll give hiking another shot tomorrow, hopefully up in Lyons, and take only one pack. 

Matthew did have a blast playing in the river there though – but had to ride home nearly naked since I forgot to pack a change of clothes for him (shame on me!) lol.
