Lucy’s First Hike at Iron Bear Mountain

We went on our first hike a little over two months after having Lucy.  Doug, Naomi, Kevin and Susie went on the hike.  We went on was the Iron Bear trail in the Wenatchee National Forest on July 9th.  It was a beautiful day for a hike.

There were a lot of wild flowers in bloom.  Pretty purples, yellow, and white.

We could see Mount Rainier in the distance

Nick was a champ, he carried Lucy, all the camera gear, AND his water

Susie was a champ too!  She is 6 months pregnant in this photo.

Lucy was a happy little girl on the hike.  Her hair is really standing up!

The hike overall was beautiful, it definitely was a hard hike for me so soon after having Lucy.  Both of my big toe nails turned black and was a lot steeper than anticipated.  In the end we did a total of 6.3 miles round trip which definitely wasn’t a short hike, but I’m proud of all of us getting out there and doing it.
