half a hike
I’ve missed hiking. It was something Caleb and I loved to do in the Fall, but put aside when the boys were little. Four years ago was the last time we attempted a hike. We off-trailed and ended up at the bottom of a mountain with our car on top. Options were to turn around or strap the boys on our backs and hike out. Half way up I told Caleb to go on without me and search for help. Okay, I was being dramatic and kidding around. A little. By the time we finally reached the car I’d decided not to hike again until the boys could power themselves with their own feet.
We started them out with an easy two mile trail last weekend. And maybe one day we’ll go back and get lost at the bottom of that mountain again.
