Hiking the Butte June 2008

We hiked up the butte while our kids were here. We didn't make it quite all the way to the top. We did go up far enough to see some great views though!

The boys and the babies. Note Elton John on the right!

You can see the summit of the butte behind us. We have learned that everything looks closer than it actually is. So if you think you are getting tired, QUIT. Turn around and go back because you still have to have enough energy to make it back to your starting point. Notice Little Elton John is completely relaxed and taking her afternoon siesta.

What goes up, must come down!
