this week we hooked up our bike trailer for the first time and went on our first family bike rides with baby harper! now that she can sit up we feel comfortable with leisurely cruising around. on wednesday we headed along the rio grande trail towards basalt. the trail was beautiful and followed the river. harper got a great nap! we had so much fun that on thursday we couldn't wait to get back on our bikes. this time, we headed towards glenwood springs, with a pit stop at the library. the trail this direction is much drier, but with great views of the surrounding mountains.
the yellow + purple wildflowers along the trail added so much beauty to the landscape. i love our new slower pace with a baby so i am able to stop + take more photos! here's to lots more family bike rides this fall!
