We’re taking a hike up Mt. Zion because there are NO SPORTS games today! Wow! So I cut the boys loose (only Ben was on board, Sam gripes before every hike “Mom, you’re SUCH a hiking DORK!”) and took off. We had a great time. This is me finding out, though, that Sam has decided to hike WITHOUT SOCKS in shoes WITHOUT SOLES (my fault – he needs new shoes) on a day with 30% chance of rain! It all worked out ok, but hopefully he’ll make better choices. Oddly, I had a long conversation with Ben about proper shoe choice and Sam must have thought none of that applied. 😉

We hiked past the summit to check out the ledges which offer great views to the Olympics. We were not disappointed. The spitting rain stopped for us to enjoy some time up there.
Skittles and hot chocolate, what could be better?
I have a picture of this same ledge on Labor Day two years ago!
Lunch in Quilcene followed by ice cream cones and basking in the sun. Wonderful 🙂 Thanks, boys! More annotated photos in the album…
