Another Bear Valley Weekend
November 9 - November 11, 2019

Another last-minute weekend trip

To our favorite place

Going for a hike with Selina

Still green

Dry creek

Long haired Peter

Pine cone collector

Found the trail after a while

Reached a lake

Ralphie surprizingly in

And fetching

Little man working

Getting warm


Brother hug

Dangerous bridge crossing

You can do it


Bear Lake in the afternoon

Light dinner


Morning trail

They prefer rocks to dust

The yellow-green plants all dried up

Snack in the shade

Going on


And up

Gravel road

The valley below

He needs to rest

Lunch spot

Highest point?

Not quite...

We kept going up

All the way

To the ski lifts




The ski lodge below

Heading down


Big man

Another rest break

Back in the forest

Down toward our home


Kids loving the boulders

The final stretch

Back to Bear Lake

Selina with the boys

The lake level quite low

Playing a bit

While Papa walked back to the trailhead to get the car

Lovely day

Sunny and warm

Dirt lovers


Getting our backpack before someone else does

Next morning at the lake with Selina

Philip went to explore with Papa

A new neighborhood

Needing a break

Walking home

Another day at the front boulders

Hiking the area

Papa enjoying his new camera

Selina on the top of a rock

The boys with Ralphie

Papa with Ralphie

Playing forts

So much to explore

Afternoon sun

A last adventure

Heading down

Slowly time to head home

On the way home
