I have been hearing rave reviews about a park about fifteen minutes from our house. Since we have been having this lovely Indian Summer, I thought we would head over and check it out.
When there is a trail, we will walk it.
When there is more than one trail we will always walk the black diamond.
Which is the number two reason why I will never go skiing. Kudos to the person who can give the number one reason why I will never go skiing.
Sadly two children were missing. One was building a chicken coop, the other was serving a short jail sentence.
Anyway, after taking the long way to get to the big trail, we managed to hike WAY further than we had planned.Here we are in the beginning:
Grace asked to take a picture of me.
This is what a picture looks like when one is giving instructions as the shutter does it’s thing.
It’s definitely better when I keep my mouth shut, and I’m not just talking about pictures.
There were lovely splashes of color among all the green.
We found a resting place with a well with a hand pump and an altar looking thing, which Grace promptly laid down on. Then she looked cute, so I had to take a picture, rather than sacrifice her to idols. Good thing she’s cute ;0)
Someone said he was tired and so he hitched a ride or two.
We found big as your face leaves.
It was a long hike in which I perspired far too much for October, but thankfully we only had one casuality.
