Hiking - Lake Pleasant - Pipeline Canyon Trail

I went hiking with the littlest hiking buddies today. As my dad did when I was young, I bribe them with snacks.

[Click on photos to see them enlarged]

The beginning of the trail.


One of my littlest friends, Johnny. I've noticed Johnny is very serious about a few things: legos, star wars, and chewing on plastic.


Spring buds.


Views along the trail.


I think I need to do some off-trail hiking so I can swim down there.


Views along the trail.


Johnny, Emma and their daddy.


Bribe #1: hike to the bridge and we'll sit down and have a snack.


Very few wildflowers this year.


Johnny.


Slimy stuff.


Views from the bridge.


Boys, talking about boy stuff.


Emma, stopping to rest for a moment.
Bribe #2: I have brownies for everyone in the car.
