A Family Adventure

Tyson, Emilie & Isaac

First spring hike, Watatic

We took a short hike up Mt Watatic with another local family. In two short weeks all the snow melted and spring arrived.

Our original plan for the weekend was to ski LINK Oakes Gulf on Mt Washington. This was the third weekend in a row that weather scuttled our plans — chance of snow, 80mph winds. Instead we downsized and took a local hike.

It definitely felt like spring. The sun was shinning, a little bit of breeze, and no jackets needed. Diane and Ian decided it was a short enough hike for them to try. With two kids along, we took about twice as long as usual. Ian hiked the whole way. Isaac rode down in the pack, partly because Tyson was getting hungry. Afterward we all headed over to another mutual friend for a cookout.
