On Father's Day we woke early, had a quick breakfast and headed out the door to visit one of our favorite short hikes in Salt Lake. This short steep hike is fantastic for kids 3+ because it is so easy, the river is shallow and clear, and there are not slippery rocks on the river floor.
It is one of our family's all time favorites.
Juliet was unsure about the baby backpack again, but this time we got smart and packed the camelback, suddenly when she had access to her own straw and unlimited sips of water, she was as happy as can be.
Sunday mornings are the best for Utah hiking, we had the trail to ourselves.
Happy happy Father's Day!
E had such a good time (which was the point, as it was Father's Day) he said "let's make Sunday morning hikes our new family tradition. I couldn't agree more.
If you want to go (you should) the Rocky Mouth Canyon Trailhead is located in Sandy, Utah. There is a small signed parking area on the east side of the road at 11300 South Wasatch Boulevard. Hike through the neighborhood, up the steep trail and you're there!
