Okay, okay. So I know this post is about 3 months late, but better late than never, right?
For Krysten's birthday (in June) we went to the Catwalk. The Catwalk is a pretty cool place that has these bridges that are catwalks. There used to be a mine up the canyon somewhere and the catwalk was what the workers used to get up to the mine. Or something like that. I don't feel like looking up the exact history of the place and it's not really the point of the post anyway :)
So, I took a 3 year old and a 4 year old hiking. Granted part of the trail is handicapped accessible, but most of it was dirt and rocks and climbing. Easy for an able-bodied adult, but somewhat challenging for preschoolers.
They did fabulous. They love being outdoors and hiking. They love the forest and water. So they had that all at the Catwalk.
The only thing that freaked them out was walking over the actual catwalks, since you can see thru the expanded metal straight down to the river. But after crossing a few, they got over their fear and were unstoppable!
