The Hike

Saturday my oldest boy went pheasant hunting with a buddy.  Wow he’s growing up.  Well, this really put out my middle son, he wanted to go hunting so badly.  I told him to jump in the truck and we would go for a drive.November_0128

We hit some dirt roads and I found a place to take the kids for a hike.  It was cold and windy.  Windy like Cheyenne windy, almost.  We put some coats on and hiked anyway.  You can see my boys ditching me quickly.

It got fairly steep in a few spots.  I had to help Little Man so he didn’t roll back down the trail.

November_0132First one to the top…. doesn’t surprise me.

November_0133The view.  It was pretty but…… it would have been nicer if it wasn’t so cold and windy.  We only lasted a very short time up there.   November_0134   Hard to see it but the moon is still out.  I should have shot some panorama pictures to give you an idea of this Big Sky Country.   Or better yet, come for a hike with me next time!
