Father's Day Hike

Hiking with kids is a perfect time to pass on knowledge

Father’s Day 2011 may go down as the best ever for me.  It was the first real hike I’d ever done with my oldest son, not quite 3 years old at the time.  We explored the desert approach to Oak Creek Canyon in what turned out to be a 4 mile hike.  Every other step was accented with a sharp “Dad, what’s this?”.  I was happy to pass on what I could…and make up what I couldn’t!  You have to love hiking with kids.
