Winter Hike at Barker Dam

Last weekend we took a little hike to Barker Dam and it was SO cold. I also want to recognize that my new definition of cold is very different after living in the desert for 2 years, but some of the water was frozen, and we had layers on.... so for us, it was cold. :) 

Barker Dam has always been one of our favorite hikes in the park. It's beautiful, short and flat and it's surrounded by the most beautiful rocks and desert plants. For those who aren't familiar with the area, Barker Dam was built in the early 1900s to preserve water for the wildlife in the park, specially the big horn sheep. It very rarely has this much water in it, so it was really high on our bucket list of hikes while we are living here.

And of course we bring lots of snacks to keep Eloise happy!
