Hiking at Great Falls

We had a few days off from school at the end of the quarter, so we convinced Grandpa to play hooky from work and we went hiking at Great Falls.

Look at the falls!

Very cool.

Dad showed the boys the high-water marker.

The boys were troopers. We walked all the way down to the Mather Gorge overlook.

There were some rocks to climb along the way.

The view was worth it.

We walked back along the canal path and got a chance to check out on of the old locks. Grandpa patiently explained how the locks worked, and then Matthew played “lock keeper” while we rowed our boats up and down the lock.

The weather was cool, but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. It was a perfect day for being outdoors enjoying the fall leaves.

I’m sure that’s what they boys were thinking, too.
