Hiking to the Grotto.......

On the weekend we took a fun family day up to a beautiful, tucked-away grotto in the mountains. It was a perfect little hike for us, not too long or steep for the kids. We packed lunches and swimming suits and had a fun afternoon.

The kids especially loved these little plank bridges to cross.......
It was very picturesque up there, but what the pictures don't show you are the 4 or 5 other families with all their kids and dogs there at the same time! Too bad such a beautiful peaceful place is also quite the family destination!
We climbed around and enjoyed the falls, and then hiked back down and found a quieter little picnic spot for our lunch. It was a great adventure and now we're excited to discover more beautiful hide-aways to visit in the mountains around us.
