Hidden Cave Trail

After we hiked the petroglyph trail(and the rain stopped)we hiked up to the caves.  The sign said these caves were used as shelter to the Ancient Americans inhabiting this area. 

There is just something about caves that are so mysterious.  The kids were facinated!!  
We only made it to the Picnic Cave because we weren't sure what the weather was going to do. The rain had stopped but the sky was looking kind of mean.
We all agree we will have to go back and explore more!

Sweet Girl  wanted to continue on.  So I climbed with her to the top of this sort of steep, rocky mountain.  Note to time...don't wear sneakers!!  It was very slippery.  We literally slid down(and up), lol. 

This is the cave we found at the top. 

The boys stayed at the Picnic Cave while we climbed. When we came down Silly Guy was eager to show me what he did.  He had tucked his sketchbook and pencil into his back pocket when we got out of the van.   While we were climbing he found a comfy rock and sketched the cave.  He did a great job.  It was a good moment!
