Always looking for a new adventure, we decided to go on a real hike in the desert. We headed to the mountains to check out Estrella Mountain Regional Park, and did the moderately difficult, 3 mile long, Baseline trail. Yes, I want to give props to Nene and the rest of us for jumping right in to a moderate instead of easy hike for our first one 🙂 One thing about desert hiking is that there are no shady spots to providing natural resting areas so we would stop randomly in the full sun to drink our water. Cooper spent most of the hike sleeping in the Ergo carrier on Daddy’s back. Apparently it was a comfy ride. With all the dust from hiking, it was definitely time for a bath.
