The overnight temperature was probably in the 50’s—not too bad at all. Everyone had a good night’s sleep except for me. I guess I am the light sleeper of the family. At least I was able to sleep better the second night. For breakfast we had quesadillas and fruit. We were able to leave the campsite by 7:30 a.m.
Our first stop was the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. This was the kids’ favorite part of the trip.
There are no trails, so the book I read said to just keep looking back so you can keep track of where the parking lot is.
It was like a huge sandbox! The kids ended up walking in their socks because they kept on complaining about sand in their shoes.
Hiking in sand is pretty difficult, and n tired himself out early, so we weren’t able to go too far.
Our next stop was my favorite, Mosaic Canyon.
This was a short hike, about 1.0 mile roundtrip.
n found this rock that he thought was shaped like a mitten and carried it with him along the hike.
