After a fantastic night under the practically-full moon at Camp Grasshopper - Byous Butte, the kids and I headed over to Hidden Spring for a morning hike. Decided to take an adventurous route and soon paid for it. Getting up over that saddle with all the current growth, with the 5yo yelping that every other green thing was poking him, took a mixture of patience, promises, and threats. Eventually we pulled over and saw the steep drop down to the spring, forcing me to change tactics. Ended up ferrying the kiddos down a few dozen yards at a time, first a carry for the 2yo, followed by coaching/assistance for the 5yo and 6yo. When we finally reached the flowing spring and easy rock-hop down to FR172 it felt like a bonafied manicured trail. After that long three hours, I decided Elephant Arch can wait for a future visit.
