We decided, since Olivia is studying mountains right now, to take a trip to Pilot Mountain and hike around it. It was rather chilly, but we soon warmed ourselves up with some good hiking.
|The trail isn't that long, but there are lots of steps|
|Olivia found lots of places to hide|
|Gabe was mighty proud that he made it the whole way by himself|
|Even Ezra wanted to walk as much as he could.|
Since we're gluttons for punishment and the trail at Pilot Mtn was only a mile, we drove over to Hanging Rock and added nearly another mile to our day. The kids weren't nearly as energetic this time, but they did a fine job of soldiering on.
|The boys plodding along. We had to do quite a bit of waiting for them, but they made it. :)|
|Ezra found himself a walking stick for part of the walk back|
