Seeing as how we live just a few minutes away from American Fork canyon, I don't know why we don't go up there more often. It's so easy to pack a quick picnic and head up.
We have been a few times, and we did go to celebrate Pioneer Day, albeit a few days later to accommodate everyone's schedules.
First up, a cute baby picture:
After dinner, we headed down to the river. Aunt Rebecca helping Brady:
I can remember from when I was a little girl, coming to this very picnic area, walking over the same bridges, and throwing rocks into the river, just like my kids.
This time around, we had one big surprise: snakes. We saw two rattle snakes--one on our hike and one right in the picnic area. Scary, but kind of cool at the same time.
