Making Like A Cow Pile...

 Jake and I hit the trail.  There were enough fencers so we left them to it and attended to more important things.  I am glad he had on a red hoodie, otherwise, I would have never been able to keep up with this boy!
Lil thought there was something under every rock.  There may have been but we never discovered what it was.
This is one mountain side of just rocks and trees.  Many of the trees were either blow down with the tornado or damaged during our ice storm.
We walked, we ran, we climbed.
This was one big rock!
Makes you wonder what geological wonder formed these.
I do know it was easier climbing up
than it was coming down!
Jake and I had a great time exploring
and the work continued without us.
Looking toward the farm houses from our rock.
The view was spectacular.
The day was perfect.
Thank you, Jake.

Lil is too funny! Love those photos with her head stuck under the rock!

So glad you had a nice day with Jake. And good for you for being able to keep up with him!

Exploring beats fencing any day. ;)

Around 500 million years ago, the Appalachian mountain chain stretched from Alabama into Canada and was taller than the Himalayas. In comparison today, they look like foothills.

It looks like you all had a great time on your hike.

I know that was fun, it was here too...very enjoyable reading and smiling as you two discovered and climbed and gandered the sights. Thanks for taking us along!

I'm not sure about your location, but a lot of those house-sized rocks were carried and dropped by the ice age glacers.

I too wonder what the dogs were looking for. Under that rock looks like a good safe place away from winter storms.

Speaking of which......

The view from atop the rock is wonderful! What a fun way to spend the day! =)

Rob said...

It looks like great fun for man and beast!

It should always be harder to climb down, don't you think? Once at the top, you should stay at the top.

Yes I like the "Kilroy was here" photo ;) Great photos too.

That looked like fun. We are snowed in here-maybe a snowman will need to be made tomorrow!
