First Spring Hike

Sunday afternoon Anthropapa had the brilliant idea of taking a hike. You see,

SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!

We walked a short way up Chinese Peak — we’ll be working our way further and further each time, but it’s going to take work, because that is one steep hill. We’re all totally out of shape, though with the warm weather lately the kids have had more time outside and SillyBilly has become a master bike rider.

Too...tired...to go...on.... Except when I get to run back down the mountain.

We had a fine time, petting dogs making their way up the mountain with other hikers, finding amazing rocks, investigating a rather busy anthill, and wondering how many times we’ll have to try the hike before we make it to the top (many). The kids got some sun on their faces, and we all slept well that night.

    Look at those clear skies! Nothing like a hike to make one feel like a part of the new cycle.

    I probably would have poked my head into those caves…..

  2. It looks like a beautiful place to hike.

  3. Oh yes…spring is here. I’m loving it!!!!! It’s a long winter, but the summers aren’t too bad. It’s a good trade-off. 🙂

  4. Gorgeous! Maybe I’ll see if I can find that location on google earth, and at least enjoy a virtual hike.

  5. Excellent. You chose your weather well, it seems.

    Hooray for spring! Enjoy the warmth.

  7. Those are amazing photos – especially the first one! That has lifted my spirits. Ah! I’d love to get out for a good walk. It’s getting colder here, I’m sneezing!

  8. Ugggh. I am so jealous! We are headed into Winter and the weather is so dark and gloomy already….I shall simply bask in your warm sunny photos 🙂
