Tuesday Cami and I took the kids up to El Morro National Monument for a hike. It was a spectacular hike. Not necessarily strenuous (we wore flip flops and even Parker hiked the whole thing by herself.) But the views were magnificent, there was a little climbing and it was just fun.
The trail is only two miles long and the first part of it winds up to the watering hole, which is fed by snow run off and rain. It's what made this place a natural stopping point for travelers along the trail west for hundreds of years. Many of them left messages and names carved in the rocks and reading these inscriptions is part of the fun of coming here.
