Hiking West African Style

In West Africa, Baby taught Heidi how to use a cloth to carry Trey on her back. That simple technique is a great way to carry a baby or small child. Forget fancy kiddie carriers, just grab a bed sheet and sling him on your back. When we were hiking a Great Sand Dunes National Park Heidi used a bed sheet she borrowed from Amy Torrence. Not only did it protect Trey from the wind and keep him warm, but within 5 minutes it put him to sleep.

We hiked up the Dunes Overlook Trail and were rewarded with a gorgeous view of the sand dunes and the stream that cuts around their east side.

    Hiking for two seems like it would be hard. But probably not as hard as hiking with a cold, tired, cranky child. :-)
