Super Family Fun Day

Or, "Where We Made the Children Walk a Long Way and Then Got Ice Cream."

With a need to get out of here and go somewhere else, Mike chose the Guest River Gorge.  We hadn't been there in years and years, maybe seven or eight.  A long time.  We knew it to be flat and wide and go through an old train tunnel.  We also knew there was the Frosty Bossie nearby, so it seemed perfect.

Guest River Tunnel

When we arrived, we saw some people walking to go swimming in the river.
We never met up with a good spot to get down to the water, never.
Oh, well.  It wasn't too hot and there was the fun, drippy tunnel.

On the Trestle

We tried letting Laurel walk, but there was too much poison ivy and the bridge made us too nervous.
It was a nice view of the water.  I guess I was too busy flinching on the bridge to get a picture.

Skipping Rope

I think we walked them about three miles, which was clearly their limit.  So, we took them to the Frosty Bossie and got ice cream and milkshakes.  The milkshake flavors that place has are so creative.  Mike and I got the chocolate rice krispies to go with our bacon cheeseburgers.  It took us a good while to get home--numerous stops and a longer route, but it was fun.

Oh, we did finally see some people coming up from fishing in the river.
They were clinging to tree roots all the way up the steep cliff.

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.
