Lion's Head Rock Slides

We decided to hike to the rock slides at Lion's Head. It was about an hour drive north from our cabin, then about another hour plus hike. I hadn't been there in years & had forgotten how far the hike was (especially with 2 little ones) and how much it was worth it in the end.
Along the way.

We stopped here for lunch & the older kids ran around & jumped in all the pools. What a beautiful spot.

Yeah....the slides!
You put a garbage bag around your bottom & go!

Brett & Libby. The shallow pools at the bottom stop you. It's the best...soooo fun!

Um, excuse me? I never even knew this existed! I want to go SO BAD! Can we please plan a day to do this with you guys? It looks awesome! I love how much you do with your kids outside. You are instilling such awesome habits in them as well as a love for the outdoors. Very cool!

That looks like SO much fun. It reminds me of Slide Rock park in Northern Arizona!

It has been so long since I have been there. A few more years and Lily will have a blast too.
