Sunday Hiking

In the above picture, do you see where the two hills dip down into each other?  Well, Dad, Zach, Nathan, Abigail, and I climbed all the way up there, turned left, and continued on up following a stream.  We wanted to find out where the origin of the stream was, and I think we did.  It pretty much vanished into the ground.  I was a little disappointed because by that time I was so tired and hot that I wanted the origin to be a big lake that I could jump in and go for a swim.  Oh well.  It took us a long time to climb up and then down that mountain.  At least 3 hours.  I think it was 9 p.m. by the time we got back down to the truck.

Nathan, after we got back to the truck.

Me.  My face, hands, and clothes were dirty from all of the charred trees.

Zach and Nathan.  It's probably a blurry picture because Mom or Anna most likely had to zoom in to get it.


We're all pretty sore in our legs from that adventurous trek, and I'm even sore in my arms.

  1. I'm happy you all made it back before dark and I didn't have to call out the park rangers!
