Minnehaha Falls

Last Monday we did a fun family hike.  Matt and I like hiking as long as there's a payoff, so we pretty much only do trails where there's a view or a waterfall.  Minnehaha Falls was perfect for us, since we had Matt's parents along too.  It's about a 1/2 mile in and out - 1 mile round trip, and easy walking.  (The note there on the railing at the beginning of the trail is misspelled.)
This is the payoff!  60 foot cascade.

The girls were great on the trail,as usual, though we were all a little cold by the end (and two members of the group may have had to pee in the woods and one member may have fallen into the water).  I kept talking about how we have to do this trail again in the summer since it widens into nice low pools at the bottom of the falls that would be perfect for little guys to play in.   Hopefully Cadence with her elephant memory will remind me 6 months from now.

Thanks for a little laughter this AM. Sounds like you all had a wonderful time! We want to go next time. And yes--I believe a particular young lady will remind you in a few months.
Love, Mom
