Animas View Trail

A few days ago Matt and I started talking about actually getting out of the house and doing things as a family on the weekend; so we put actions to our words today and went for a hike and picnic lunch. It was fun and Benen actually walked part of the way. It was a short little 2/3 mile hike on a paved trail in the National Forest. It over looked the valley and is appropriately named Animas View Trail (it is located up above Lightner Creek). Anna had fun giving us directions and making sure we stayed on the right trail. There were these nice outlets along the way with bench or picnic tables; perfect for our lunch. Here are some pictures to enjoy.
