Snowy Hike On Lower Baldy

We brought sleds but the snow was just a little too heavy and wet, and the incline just not steep enough to negate that. Still one of our favorite local hikes though!

With little legs sometimes its more fun to walk straight out and back to the boardwalk on the Albert Loop trail.

An easy hike out to Peters Creek Inlet at sunset. It was beautiful and very, very cold. I love the ice plates left by the rising and falling tide.

We walked the hillside trail which goes up and over the mine. I'm sure the longer views are amazing when the fog isn't as thick as pea soup haha.

 The trail continues but we didn't go onto the narrow and steep portion of the trail that leads to Hatch Mountain. We did walk a little farther which are the above views.

Seward Beachcombing

seward family time

Just a quick post. We had a whole day planned in Seward but due to a medical emergency (mine, boo, and I'm slowly getting better) we just ended up on the beach. You can tell by the smile that the girls didn't mind. :)
