Logan Canyon Hike

While we were in Utah this summer, we went hiking with some of our cousins.  My sister-in-law has organized weekly hikes with some other mothers.  They drive up a little way into the nearby Logan Canyon, and take all of their children for a day hike, once a week.  Doesn’t that sound fantastic?

Tell me again why I moved to the prairie.  I’m jealous of these people with mountains in their backyards.

Anyhow, we got to join in with our cousins and about 25 other kids for a hike on Logan Canyon’s Riverwalk Trail.  It was an easy hike, perfect for young kids.  The most treacherous part of it being the very full, very fast river that ran alongside the trail.  My very smart SIL told the children, “If you are close enough to the river to throw a rock in, you are too close.”

This is my SIL, who is married to Bill.  My brother did very well when he married her.  She’s amazing.  Not only can she sew, she can tie flies and install plumbing.  And she has very cute babies.  This is their youngest.

Their others aren’t too bad looking, either.  And they are lots of fun.  


My kids had a great time on this hike.  Not only were there lots of other kids to play with, the other moms on the trek were very laid back.  Kids want to stop and look at rocks?  Okay.  

Kids want to play in the tall grass?  Let ’em.

You want to run down another trail?  Go for it!

Everyone wants a walking stick?  Go get ’em, kids!

It was wonderful.  Of course, Logan Canyon is known for great rock climbing–as these children can attest.

Trail mix made by their aunt was the like icing on the hiking cake.

Too bad this little guy’s brothers wouldn’t let us bring him home with us.

We were willing to trade–Hunter would have been happy to stay behind.  Oh, well.  Thanks, cousins, for a great time in the mountains!
