I went on a hike with my kiddos today. All four of my kids and my grandson joined us on the first leg. We hiked up to see some huge old hemlock trees. Three of the kiddos and the grand baby then returned to the picnic area to hang out while my son and I went on a much longer and harder hike. It felt so good to be out in the woods on a beautiful day. We found a meadow full of wild strawberries and the creek was icy cold, but refreshing, when we had to wade across to follow the trail.
Our mileage total is about 80 miles so far. This ncludes our hikes as well as a bunch of walks and walk/jogs.
On our trip to Mordor we've reached the morning of day four (Bonfire Glade) By the end of this day the hobbits had reached Tom Bombadil's house (my first mini-goal). We've still got 18 miles to go so it wil be awhile. We aren't reaching it by tonight for sure! But we are getting closer. . .
