Overnight w/ kiddos. Road to Mormon Grove TH is in good shape and the trail fantastic. Paused at Potato Patch to collect a few hundred foxtails. Stopped at McFarland Creek for lunch, then set up my hammock for a nap and let the kids play with rocks and metal, then suddenly the afternoon was gone. Pleasant way to spend the time. Dinner was simple and we were all tucked in by 9. Overnight temps were pleasant and a light sweater was sufficient in the morning. Hike out was chilly in the shade. Back to the Jeep before noon, drove past the Bush Highway zoo, and went swimming at grandparents. Only saw one other hiker on Saddle Mountain Trail, he was doing a Peeley -> Cross F shuttle.
