Bullards Bar Resevoir is not that far from the house. However, the road we usually take still had trees down everywhere from the snow. So by the time we got to the trailhead, it was already time to have our picnic.
Once the bellies were full we took off.
Some hike a little faster than others.
The kiddos played this game where they would run ahead as far as they could before we lost sight of them and them freeze until we caught up and gave them the signal to run on.
The view of the lake from the trail was just spectacular, even in winter (the water will be higher come summer). I was just thinking what a great trail this would be to bike when, whadda ya know, a few mountain bikers passed us. They gave us some tips for when we come back with some bikes, and a few less kids.
This is really more of a boy thing. So Abs and I played with the camera.
