the hill climb

DSC_0065

Mark and Siena have climbed this hill a couple of times, and Lucas has always been too little.  This time though, they all three went with Grammie.

DSC_0072 Yes, that hill in the middle of the photo above.

Then they left, to this thing they do when we go to Grandpa and Grammie’s cabin, but this year a little different, as it is every time, as the kids grow and change.DSC_0104

That hill from down here, didn’t seem like much, but as they got further and started to climb, the stories we heard, and then we looked at the pictures Mark took, looked very different up close.

Rugged, rough.IMG_0271 Steep.

And this is what we saw from the bottom, with a zoom in the camera.

Then, on the other side of the hill…IMG_0290 IMG_0298they saw elk.

IMG_0297 Yes, I get it.  This is the open-ness Mark talks about missing.

      Thanks Glendie. I know, I am glad we got the small camera. It’s fun to see the photos of what they saw from up there!
