My kids had friends in town from Calgary. I wanted to do something on my day off after Christmas, and decided to take them all on a hike. Knowing they love creekside hikes I decided on Sycamore since it is close by. We piled into the minivan and drove up 87 to my spot near the overpass. Started our hike down to the creek. The kids enjoyed the boulder hopping, exploration and discovery of thin sheets of ice which they proceeded to crack over their heads. This made for some fun photo ops.

We reached a point where either some tougher scramble moves would have to be made, or some wading through the chilly water. The kids decided that neither option was worth continuing our planned loop and instead would prefer to go back and revisit some of the "cool" places we had passed on the way in.

We all got out with minor scratches from the occasional catclaw. Returned to the car with some hungry and tired out kids. Went out for hot dogs, pizza and churros before calling it a day.
