Walk #339: Can You Out Hike a 4th Grader?

Posted Dec 05 2009 12:00am
Kylie (aged 9 and 3/4) was kind enough to hike down the Canyon with me today..

I showed her the bear track I found this morning...

And we hiked down to the bottom of the Canyon. Kylie said: "This is the best hike ever!"

Angel came along and had a swim in the Feather River...

And Grady, one of my neighbor's dogs, came along for a hike and a swim too!

We spent about an hour climbing the rocks on the bottom of the Canyon. We let the dogs swim. Had a rest...

And then we climbed the leg quivering, heart racing Canyon back to our home. Took 1 hour and 7 minutes to climb back up the Canyon. Not too bad, considering that the dogs ran off (doing doggy things and getting into some bear scat for a treat). Kylie was a trooper!

I told Kylie, as she huffed and puffed up the trail, that if you enjoy hiking, you will have one of the cheapest and most thrilling hobbies that you can enjoy throughout your whole life!
