City Creek Canyon

We have been keeping busy and hopefully getting the boys ready for a lot of walking on our next Disney trip. Thursday after Cody got home we loaded up the boys for a drive up City Creek Canyon. It was completely not what we were expecting, but we still had a great time. I expected a parking area and a trail to walk up, instead it was a long slow drive up the canyon on a fairly narrow road. At the top we did get out and followed the trail up to the creek crossing. The trail was only about 3/4 of a mile up to the creek. We didn’t feel like wading through the water so we turned around.

On the way up the boys pointed out all the trees, rocks, bugs and logs and flowers.  Along the trail we came across some recently cut logs that the boys decided were the most exciting thing up there. We drummed on them, we climbed on them and of course posed for some pictures.

On the way back down the hill Nicholas and Parker ran ahead with Cody. Andrew hung back a little to look at the flowers and eventually decided to take a rest on a rock on the middle of the trail. He sat down an immediately started waving and saying bye bye to Daddy and his brothers.

The boys had such a good time walking the trails I’m sure we’ll be back and looking for other trails to take the boys on.
