Pure Goodness

I went on a women's retreat this weekend...there were so many great things that happened...but one of my favorites was going on a hike up to 2 natural reservoirs. It was totally uphill and completely worth it.

I loved this hike so much that I took the kiddos on it yesterday. They are not too fond of hiking, but I thought if there was a lake at the end of the walk, it might encourage them to do it. Well, we ended up meeting this random fisherman named Ted who told us all about the trails, the rock caves, and best of all GEO-CACHING.

If you haven't heard of it, it's hiking with a purpose. You need a GPS (the kids are now going to save up for one, or I might upgrade my cell phone to one that has navigation controls on it)...and you look online for different geo-caches, it's coordinates, and you're off on a hike where you can find treasure buried or hidden. The kids are so excited and I'm totally into it too...exercise with the family...outdoor time...pure goodness.

ok, it all sounds well and good...but YOU HAVE TO HIKE!
I'm with your kids - I hate hiking. But wow, if I had the promise of a view like that...I might give it a whirl.
