I'm so glad these kids enjoy hiking and nature as much as Dave and I do-- we got up early for a 'breakfast hike' today. Justin was proud of summiting "two mountains" yesterday and wanted to do it again. I was only too glad to bring along the camera and get some nice shots. We talked a lot today about how this is winter in the desert, and spring looks much different. Maybe we'll have to schedule a spring-time trip to do some real sketching/observing of desert plants.
