Hiked up to the now closed up Lead Mine at the base of Mummy Mountain this afternoon and got a good view of the Rainbow Canyon area with the Carpenter Canyon Burn area just behind it. It’s a good perspective of just how close the fire got to the community.

I took my 8 year old on his first fairly long hike and through a few mumbles and grumbles, on the way down I asked him if he had a good time. He said, “No, I had a great time”! So I’m hoping to get back up exploring the hills soon!
