Donut Falls

A couple weeks ago on a Friday, when Julia gets outs of school early, we headed up Big Cottonwood Canyon to see if there was any fall color on it's way in. We went to Donut Falls to do a little hiking. As we were leaving to pick up Julia Grandpa Wheat showed up, so he joined us for the hike too.

Camden has two speeds, run and stop. This is stop.

 It was a good thing Grandpa joined us because there were a couple of tricky spots that he helped the kids on, like crossing the stream.

Julia with the Falls. You can't see it well from this angle, but the "Donut" is up at the top where the water falls into a rock with a large hole in it.

 Break at the end. It wasn't too long of a hike, but it was for their little legs.

 On our way back. Micah and Camden rotated who got to ride in the backpack (mostly Camden), and I held Micah's hand most of the way back so he wouldn't trip on the rocks. As we were coming up to the parking lot I let go and sure enough, just after I took this he tripped on a rock and fell and I had to carry him the last 100 yards.
