When we did this, the darkest days always had light. We allowed infertility to refine us, rather than define us.
I love it inside Grotto Canyon, I think it's incredibly gorgeous (and shady, depending on what time of day you go!). The rocky footing can be a little trickier for the kids than a plain path, but it's also way more fun for them to climb their way through, jumping their way across the creek over and over again. Who am I kidding? I found it really fun too!
