NaBloPoMo Day 4: Hiking in Dry Canyon with Fall Colors

It's day four of NaBloPoMo! Sticking with the theme of "past adventures that we haven't been able to blog about as well as what's happening currently," This blog will be about hiking in Dry Canyon on September 23rd.

It was a nice Sunday morning so Olsen and his friends decided to go hiking up Dry Canyon, in Logan, and to play in the fall colors (and the kids brought their parents too).  Dry Canyon sits at the end of the Mountain Road

The parking lot has lots of great boulders to climb on that the kids could probably play on all day.

Did Eryn push Olsen???
...looks like he got pushed!
Anakin Skywalker?
He totally reminds me of Anakin Skywalker here
We finally got hiking up the hill and ran into some colorful trees

It's really hard to get all the kids to pose together

We then came to another boulder that the kids really had a good time playing on

And the cycle goes on, so we ran into a red tree that all the kids took a turn posing in

Time to start hiking home.  It sure goes a lot faster going downhill
