Okay, so the little guy didn't do much except come along for the ride. I guess technically, his first hike was in December at just a couple weeks as an embryo. But, he is a lot bigger now (almost 4 lbs), so it counts more, especially since I was carrying him.
A couple Fridays ago, before Pedro started his judicial externship, I took off work and we headed north to Lake Superior. I loved getting away from the city to the rivers, trees and trails of some state parks a few hours up the coast. We hiked about a total of 10 miles near waterfalls, by a lighthouse and along the Superior Hiking Trail. I LOVE THE MOUNTAINS! It felt so good to breathe really clean, fresh air and hike a trail where we didn't see other people for at least an hour or two.
On one hike, Pedro saw some sun glasses in a river. He waded in and rescued them only to discover they were kids' glasses.
Important note: In my opinion, hiking is not hiking without some type of elevation in some type of natural nature. There is not a lot of elevation in the Twin Cities area, though there are a few places of natural nature.
