Silver Lake

Rich had Labor Day off, and we wanted to do more than our usual Rich-has-a-day-off routine (go to a store/the mall and walk around). We looked up good hikes for 3-year-olds and found a lot of people recommended Silver Lake in Big Cottonwood Canyon. It even said you could bring a stroller on it, so that seemed like a good place for us.

I think about half of Utah had the same idea. It took us a while to find somewhere to park, and then there were masses of people all trying to do the same hike, which wasn't a hike because it had a boardwalk for half of it and a well-trimmed and very wide path for the rest of it. It was nice to get out, and it was very pretty up there. But I don't know if I would recommend it because it was too crowded (granted, we should have known that it would be really busy on Labor Day). I also learned that Norah is not a hiker. It wasn't even a mile long, and she was whining by about 5 minutes in. One of our goals this next summer is turn us all into better hikers.

But we did manage to take some pictures, and they at least look like we enjoyed ourselves.

The picture on the left here cracks me up. Norah has a mouth full of Goldfish crackers and is giving the thumbs up, which she never does.

Norah had completely lost interested by this point. We had to bribe her with going out to eat to get her to finish.
