Like most years, the inaugural hike of the season was to Spud Lake. Banner took it all in stride, and rocked the Baby Bjorn like he had been hiking his entire life.
It was a beautiful day, and a wonderful hike. There were other hikers on the trail, but we ended up having the lake to ourselves by the time Banner finished his “picnic” bottle on the beach. We even dipped his toes in the cold water – a proper initiation for our little first timer.
It was a little surreal to think back to the last time I visited Spud Lake. Sarah C and Peaches were visiting. It was my 31st birthday. We had just learned the sex of the baby I was carrying, and the THOR nickname had just been coined by Trevor. Amazing how much can change in a year!
Here are some of the pictures from Banner’s first hike in Colorado:
