Limestone Canyon Hike on Wilderness Access Day

We went hiking somewhere new last weekend – Limestone Canyon Nature Preserve. This Irvine Ranch Natural Landmark area where we hiked is only open during special “Wilderness Access Days” and you have to preregister to enter the area. My aunt and uncle were visiting from Michigan and so all six of us spent a few hours hiking 4 miles in Limestone Canyon. Despite being 30 weeks pregnant, I still carried both girls on my back at various times (everybody wants Mama!). We had hoped to hike a loop in the canyon, but we ran out of time and so we just hiked an out-and-back trail. One thing was definitely clear – our kids hike so much better with other kids around to distract and motivate them! Overall, though, the girls did great and we had a fun time exploring a new landscape.

    Wow! 30 weeks and you look great – I can’t believe you were carrying kids on your back too! I remember we had to break Autumn of her penchant for being carried when I got pregnant with Isaiah, because my back just could not take them both. Sounds like you had a ton of fun, and the magic of finding other children to entertain your children truly is one of the greatest magics of all!
