Spring Break Getaway: Mt Lemmon

D and I did a lot of reading about the Tucson area before we moved here and one of the family activities that we kept coming across was hiking on Mt Lemmon.  Since we loved hiking as a family, I can't believe it took us over two years to get things together enough to drive up for a hike!  We finally did it on the last day of kids spring break.

We didn't make any concrete plans for the day, just drove around the mountain enjoying the views until we found a trail that looked promising.  We hiked, kicked dirt, threw rocks, got our feet wet in the creeks, picnicked for lunch and then splurged on fudge for the drive home.  Everyone had an awesome time and it was nice spend a few hours in the forest, enjoying some cooler weather and letting the kids run free.
