Delicate Arch, Utah: The family hikes together

[Southwest USA]

I had the fun of teaching my 65 year old mother how to enjoy a hike. “Go slow and steady – even at snail’s pace – and don’t let yourself become even remotely winded. Don’t stop either. See how hard it is to make yourself go slowly?” My parents had a great time. My wife was pregnant with Jack. Sophie was seven, and just skipped her way up.
