the famous Y, twice-over
Our annual November hike to the Y! This year with the Andersons.
Bella and Brianne, best friends
The first quarter-mile always sees some poutiness. Check out the sass in this step.
The best and brightest smiler! Ever since the day he was born.
There was some intense imagination going on with sticks turning into swords with names like "the lightning killer" and "thunder power" and whatnot.
lots of scrambling

Jarom and Torin and Collin rushed to the Y on the lower trail
climbing it is dangerous for tottering toddlers!

Orion said that this was "amazing!"
This view always makes me think of China. Am I right?
the sunset coming down is one of our favorite parts
until next year . . .

We cut over south toward Slide Canyon to see something new. The whole north-facing side of the canyon was shadowed and snowy, and we stood and watched for a bit before speaking. As soon as we did, a flurry of deer rustled up and out and the canyon, then headed up through the snow to higher ground.
You can see six deer in this picture if you look closely.
