It was a beautiful and warm afternoon, so we decided to go down to "the Chains" for a little adventure. We spent over 2 hours hiking the rock formations, looking at lizards, and throwing stones into Lake Powell. It is something how throwing rocks into the water can entertain kids so thoroughly. There were streaks of sediment throughout the rocks, and the kids found a nearly parallel set of sediment lines in the stone. They proclaimed them train tracks and followed them until they diverged from each other. Their imaginations were in full swing, which helped pass the pleasant afternoon. Though I'll have to remark on little Annie. She insisted on wearing a skirt with tights and carrying a purse with her on this nature hike. She was persuaded to give up the purse, only after about an hour of carrying it around.
