Arizona Day 2: A Hiking Trip


On our second day in AZ we went on a nice hike in the mountains followed by a visit to a little western themed town. It was great to be in the gorgeous outdoors soaking up the sun’s rays… It also reminded me how out of shape I am… ha! {It wasn’t really too bad 🙂 }

trying out the “baby backpack”!
A few shots on the way up… {hard to capture how pretty it really was!}
we found a nice little rest spot
Wes and I posin’ with a cactus
Holly admiring the view
the two love birds
the photographers capturing the love birds
checking out the area with some binoculars {I know we’re all standing awkwardly, but it’s such a weird sensation looking through the binoculars while standing on a cliff!}
We made it! Love this picture of us… even if Im in a shadow haha
Wes’s scenery shots… I like his better 🙂
A short distance from the hiking path we stopped at Goldfield Gold Mine for some lunch and to check out the little Western themed town. The gang got burgers and chicken fingers while little girl & I enjoyed some ice cream {It was SO good!}
Wes’s pic – I love how the focus is all on the food
Holly & Deb catching up with us
a few of the buildings
hahaha… an amusing cigarette butts holder… baby girl looks a little unsure 
another shot of the “town”
After our hike, we headed back to the house and spent the rest of our afternoon relaxing. It was wonderful.
