Into the wild…

The kids ands I went on a hike (I'm using that term very loosely) down to our bottom fields. It was an unusually cold day, and the last one before summer really set in. There was a break in the rain, and a thick fog had crept in. We quickly got our gear together and set out for a little jaunt.

We took off down the winding road, singing a little tune and thrilled to be out amongst the wild.

Our path was interrupted by a cascading creek, which quickly stole our attention, it whispered our names, and beckoned us to follow.

It led us thru a maze of rocks carpeted with dewy moss, past thickets of thorn and underbrush and into a valley of almost eerie stillness.

We explored till our adventurous hearts were full and our shoes to muddy and cold to carry on. Really, I couldn't ask for more.
