We've been trying to get out on hikes a little more with the children. They love to explore just like us. This weekend we hiked around the base of Mt. Diablo in an area called Mitchell Canyon and Donner Canyon. Out and back, the hike was about 3 miles. Just enough for our family as the weather was getting cold. There was a lot of mud... lots and lots of it. A little bit of snow way up at the top of the mountain, too.
I didn't bring my regular camera instead we just brought our phones.
