Hiking to Green Mountain Falls (Sort of)

We went hiking on Saturday to see how we'd do on our camping trip. The kids actually did really well and hiked 4 miles with little problems.  But it was beautiful weather, not hot at all and we were in shade the whole time.  I'm scared for our camping trip.  But we had trouble finding the trailhead, so we drove around for an extra hour.  Oops, so we couldn't actually hike all the way to the falls--that would have been 6 miles round trip.  Ah well, another time.  We had the chance to discuss with certain irate children that sometimes things don't go as planned and that any hike we're on while camping might be ended at any time if all the little kids are exhausted (or Mom and Dad.) Ana was working that night.

At the Platte River

There were tons of these birds flying SO FAST over the river and eating bugs and I took about 300 pictures trying to catch a close up.

This was the best I got.

Lando was so happy with the feather he found.  And Sebastian was so sad at not finding a feather.

And I was terrified that Jubal would fall in the river (very swift with spring runoff despite appearances.)  Luckily, all was well.

Our plans for a picnic kind of crashed though.  It was lovely when I started taking pictures of Isabel but by the time I was taking Jubal's pictures all the kids were huddled in the van for warmth and eating their picnic there.  It WAS cold and windy!  I swear the temperature dropped 15 degrees.  Wyoming,  I love it!
