This hike was A-MAZING and so kid friendly! The tent rock shaped formations are the products of volcanic eruptions that occurred 6 to 7 million years ago. Then over time eroded away from water and wind. Truly a spectacular site.
What would have taken us 30 minutes to hike took us 2.5 hours instead. Miles took us on many detours. We picked up a million and two rocks, sat on 500 other rocks, jumped off of 2,000 boulders and sat down in the middle of the trail to watch beetles and scratch in the dirt with sticks.
I loved the narrow trails-- especially with a wandering toddler. It helped keep him on track.
I love the picture below. It depicts pretty much how the entire hike went-- Miles was constantly pushing me forward so he could hang back and take his dandy ole' time.
This tree with it's exposed roots made a perfect hide out for Miles.
Such a perfect hike on a perfect day.
