HIKING: LAKE CLARA
AGE 5, MONTH 9
MAY 9 (2020)
This is a beautiful place with its trailhead located at the base of the Mission Ridge ski area. Todd geared up (to fight bad guys along the way), wearing his backpack, trooper mask, and medal. I posed him for his Kindergarten group picture like this first picture, but here’s the version of him while wearing the mask…
On the trail, Todd paused to answer a “Facetime” call from his kitties at home…
We’d never done this hike in early May. Todd loved the feeling of post holing in the snow. He was wet by the end of the trip! I enjoyed seeing all the flowers blooming where the snow had already melted.
This is always a favorite spot to stop and play. We pushed chunks of snow into the creek and watched them turn clear and then disappear.
Approaching the lake, Todd’s joy continued, plodding in the deep snow. And- I caught him on camera falling on his butt!
