Bells Canyon






 Last Saturday, we went for our first hiking as a family and for the summer. We decided it would be fun to get outdoors more this summer and do things together, especially with Tyler not having school for the first time during the summer. Our first hike is called Bells Canyon. It is up Little Cottonwood Canyon. It was intense for a first time, but we did it! We didn't make the first waterfall, but we make it to the lake and with two kids, that is a success for us. We did try to go to the waterfall, but Taryn started fussing and so we turned around.

We went with some friends and that was fun. It was nice to have others join us on our adventure. We are excited to try some more this summer. I have a few that I am excited to try. Here is a link of some that we will be doing this summer.
