How do you reach the top of Mount Washburn with 4 kids under 7?
A B.O.B. (Baby on Board) stroller helped a lot. Mom pushed that.
Dad did his part. I don't know how he did this hike in flip flops!
The trail still has remnants of blacktop, but vehicles are no longer allowed.
The oldest kid hiked the 6 miles round trip and 2000 feet of elevation gain all by herself! And little bro hiked most of the way, too. They were awesome.
A cute chipmunk inside Mount Washburn's fire tower scurried around to steal lunch crumbs from the tourists. He was so overfriendly, he was a little scary.
A herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep graciously shared the trail with us. Some didn't bother to get up from their afternoon nap as we trekked past.
Butterflies and flowers were pretty at the lower altitudes.
After that hike, a big cookie was well-deserved and tasted extra good!
