A Hike

Friday evening, we drove up to a lodge operated by the Appalachian Mountain Club and joined quite a few families for a night there and a hike in the morning. We didn’t make it in time for the hike Friday afternoon, but the next day’s hike was a lovely 1.5 miles in and back to a pretty waterfall. The four of us slept in the same room for the first time ever. The hike took us through some woods following the course of the river. At the waterfall’s base, there was a lovely, small swimming hole. The water’s temperature was a bit bracing, but walking around in the shallows revealed waterbugs with fascinating shadows, small fish, mica flakes in the rocks that glistened, and much more. Rose slowly became more tolerant of the cold water and spent some time exploring these wonders. Both kids were great on the hike in and back, and they were pretty wiped out on the way home
