Beautiful Kimberly wanted to go to a backcountry cabin for her birthday, so Kessler, Shaylee, Kimberly, and I hiked to the Broome Hut located at 11,350 feet in the Vasquez Mountains Friday evening. It was snowing on the drive and snowing on the hike, but we didn't have any real problems.
We cooked Kimberly a nice dinner while she relaxed and read.
In the morning, we cooked beautiful Kimberly a nice breakfast. She wanted some quiet reading time so she suggest that I take the kids up the mountain while she read.
The kids and I climbed both Twin Cones while she stayed behind with her books and relaxed. We saw some moose tracks early on and then many bunny tracks.
There were a few spots with deep snow, and some rock scrambling, so the climb took longer than expected.
After climbing the peaks, we returned and everyone had a late lunch before we all headed down.
