Milk Ranch Canyon Hike

We've been hearing rumors that one of our favorite hiking spots was filled with waterfalls due to the huge amount of snow we had this winter, so with a beautiful Sunday evening stretching out before us we packed a picnic, towels, and dry clothes and headed out to Milk Ranch Canyon. We were not disappointed!

Very COLD water!

The top of the canyon is filled with little streams and puddles and flat spots to sit, so we let the boys splash and run and enjoyed our picnic.

Clayton fell in, and was upset for about the time it took to take his picture. Then he remembered how much fun he was having and got right back into the puddle jumping.

When Clayton gets excited he usually gets into a squat position and does some crazy dancing; here he was showing off his hotdog and saying what fun he was having.

Garrett said "This is a lot like McDonald's; you can eat, then play, then come back to eat again."
Dam building...I don't think they'll be able to stop the snowmelt, but a boy's gotta try right???
It was a wonderful evening and we're hoping to be able to get up there again next weekend before the runoff is gone - anyone want to join us?
