Shane had never been hiking before. Sure we take lots of bike rides, go jogging, and general roaming around in the carrier but putting him in the hiking pack for an extended period of time? Were we asking too much of the little guy? Nope. In typical Shane fashion, with a giggle and a big smile we were off to explore the Auburn State Recrecation Area.
Not wanting to push our luck, we kept the hike short. We had a great time. The flowers were starting to bloom and there were lots of butterflies. Shane loved hearing all the birds. Hopefully we can take more little family hikes like this and work our way up to his daddy's old stomping grounds of Yosemite.
Hiking is fun. So much fun, you just flop over and take a nap.
