Father's Day Up High

After a hot and stormy week, I think we are in a spell of perfect weather.  It's cool this morning, but the day will be plenty warm, just like yesterday.  We went to Whitetop to take in the clear skies and quiet fresh air (and to celebrate Mike, of course!).  There were a fair amount of people up there, but we finally found our own place to be--my children are quite accustomed to experiencing their favorite places in solitude.

Mike and Laurel

I suppose if we are giving out "place" names, I suppose we could call this "The Climbing Place."

Tree Climbing

The bulk of our time there, they were climbing.
These big rocks were the main event and the children gave them names,
like in Happy Times in Noisy Village.

Rock Climbing

Laurel was quite the intrepid two-year-old climber.
She sold "pupcakes" from the summit.

Selling Cupcakes

Me, I would call it "The Rambling Place," since that's what it makes me want to do.
I think we may try a Nature School Expedition down to Buzzard Rock this Summer.

Down to Buzzard Rock

I'm looking forward to the shortening days and all the harvesting that lies ahead.
We're back on our daily raspberry picking routine. And with that, Happy Summer Solstice!


Another lovely view

It is good to know I am not alone. ;-) Yes, the cupcake stand was so sweet.

So beautiful! Your landscape is so different than ours. Hills into the distance!

It is a beautiful place, for certain. :-)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
