Easter Hike

We woke up this morning to candy and Easter eggs galore! The Easter Bunny really outdid itself this year. We wanted to do a hike before we headed back up North, and boy oh boy did we do it. We rode on this insanely bumpy 4 wheel drive trail for an hour and a half, and by the time we got there, we were all a little rattled. The hike was so worth it though! Amazing! For sure one of the best hikes I've done in Moab. I don't know why it's underlining here. sorry.

The Easter Bunny totally went before us and wouldn't you know it, there were candy eggs all along the trail! The kids were in heaven! Coolest Easter Bunny ever.

We also found wild onions to go with the candy eggs.

It was a beautiful hike. So so so so so beautiful. I took so many pictures. It was steep, and mostly followed cairns on sand stone, and yowza, it was mighty fun.

When we arrived, the arch was equally amazing.

We stayed for quite a while and enjoyed the warm sun. The kids ate, and played on the rocks, then we headed back.

An hour and a half, and 5 rattled kids later, we were back at the Moab house. I don't know if my neck can take that drive again, but wow, it was awesome, and I'm so happy to have spent Easter morning there.

loved this tree below the arch
Easter in Moab with the little paynes is my favorite tradition. We don't have enough traditions in our family, but this is a good one.
