Goose Lake/University Trails

I have to admit, I woke up grumpy and really didn't want to go trekking this morning and the new spring snow didn't really help that... but I dragged myself there with an equally grumpster of a kid and as the endorphins kicked in and the sun broke through so did my attitude! I'm so thankful that I organize this group! It adds that extra fire under my butt to get there on time, even when I don't really want to. Always by the time our truck pulls up to the trailhead... I really want to. 



Arriving at Goose Lake this morning, the roads were slick and the snow was starting to peter off. The sky was still ominous and gray. By the time we had the kids bundled up to go the sun was trying to peak through the clouds so I grabbed my sunglasses at the last minute from the truck. I'm glad I did! As we trekked and chatted along the trail the sun emerged! It was stunning, shooting rays of light through the sparkling trees. Again we lingered after chatting as some of the kiddos emerged from their motion induced naps. Driving on the way out the sun had already worked her magic on the slippery streets and puddles splashed as car roared through them.

Pre trek.

This week's Trek -

Thursday, April 7
Prospect Height Trailhead 
Anchorage, AK - 10:00 am

Conditions are likely to change quickly this time of year... as of right now it is a baby carrier and sled friendly trail... the snow & ground will be mushy, waterproof footwear will make trekking more enjoyable.

Parking is $5 unless you have a state park parking pass.

Another huge turnout for Taiga Trekkers! I counted about about 32 participants (parents and kiddos combined). Conversations ranged from how to say "no" to your toddler, sleep, nursing, and first teething experiences. Children ages varied from 3 months to 2 years. Many of the mamas were hiking with two kiddos in tow or are pregnant with number 2. Networking was happening, friendships deepened and bonds forged... all while ambling with our little ones down a beautiful coastal trail in the rain! There were also lots of smiles and greetings from other trail users as they saw our entourage pass by. Oh and we logged at least 3 miles of good outdoor exercise!
