Hiking with kids. The constant prodding and cajoling to get them to keep moving forward can sap the fun from any hiking adventure. Sure, there were some tricks that helped – geocaching, bringing friends, adding chocolate to the trail mix – but it was still hit or miss. And then one day, they were outpacing us; scrambling over rocks and ledges with the swiftness of jungle cats. I couldn’t seem to keep up let alone take any pictures. Micah shimmied up a water fall before I could decide how I felt about it. He jumped into tiny pools of stream water from narrow ledges making my stomach cramp with fear. Maybe I want them to slow down. Just a bit?
