Tanya's dissertation was done and defended (with minor revisions!) on Monday, and Lilah has now grown big enough to fit in her baby backpack, so it was time to finally get the family out on a good hike together. And what better place to do that than West Clear Creek. I parked the CR-V where 81E meets 693, and the road was fine to that point. A couple rough spots where there's been some recent mud, but nothing it couldn't handle. Then we started road walking (yes!!!) down towards Tramway Trail. The first couple miles were warm and breezy, and the descent was getting a little toasty, which is perfect for jumping into that creek. Rincon led the way into the water, and we found a nice shallow spot to let Lilah sit down and enjoy it too. She had a good time watching all the minnows swim around us. We lazed around for a couple hours, taking turns swimming and waiting for the sun to get lower. I shouldered the baby and Tanya shouldered the water and food and out we went. The ascent was much nicer, due to some clouds and more shade. Great day out!
