I have always loved this picture of me hiking with Sam (and Ben in belly). I thought to ask April to grab a similar picture of the three of us today. We had a great time hiking with our friend, April, and really enjoyed finding another cache. We also loved how the clouds drifted by at the summit, obscuring our view some of the time, then unveiling it softly a few minutes later. I just walked these photos over to Sam so he could see how much bigger he is now. He enjoyed comparing how much he’s grown, and how fast he hiked up this time – only an hour to the top and no snack stop! Wow (for reference it’s 1.5 miles to the top and 800′ elevation gain). I am still impressed he did this at 3 yrs old all by himself! What a guy.
