To escape the heat today we went on a hike in the mountains, we went up to 3600ft, and it felt like a mild fall day up there. When we arrived the mountains were covered in fog that then slowly dissipated as the morning wore on, there was a cool breeze and it was nothing less than delightful to actually feel a bit chilly for a moment.
All of my reference books are in boxes, does anyone know what this little flower is, so mystical looking?
The high meadow
Kaleena found a climbing tree, they both climb so high now, thankfully they are very safe climbers with attention to their grip, and I adore to observe their agility and confidence growing with each tree they climb
we even found some blackberries and also a few blueberries:)
The children found concentrations of Mica, a beautiful shiny mineral common in these mountains
and Kaleena who would run far ahead would find a spot to sit and fiddle with leafs, sticks and straw, so at home in nature, ahhhh
These mountains are indeed, even on a day like today with low visibility, so beautiful!!
~a very happy evening to you~
