Most of the people, and my family members included, would just pass by any weird or weed like looking flower. I, as long as I have my camera wrapped around my neck, will capture their beauty . I see how mysterious, colorful and breathtaking they are.
The last very serious hike took place two years ago. Our Mount Washington expedition.
It was easier then. Kubus traveled in the backpack. Now, almost six, he is old enough and strong enough to travel using his two own feet.
The problem with most of the kids that age, or rather with all of our kids, is that they don't see to beauty of it. The see just the climb and the struggle. They don't see the reward...
So it was really challenging to encourage Jacob and push him. But we did it, and most important he did it!
We took two nice hikes.
The first one was in Sunday River Resort area; it was quite windy and chilly and we have not met anybody on the trail! But the views reminded me of Polish low mountains, and made it feel closer to my heart...
The Mt. Pleasant hike was close to the lake house that we stayed in. The day was warm and sunny and the trail was quite popular with others for a change. Rather opposite to the first one !
The views were spectacular, and my pictures don't do the justice! Every direction we looked, we could see lake after lake and pond after pond. The White Mountains range in NH presented itself quite majestic !
I could go on the trails everyday, but the vacation was coming to the end and we figured that two hikes in a week was enough that our boy could handle:)
After we dropped Kiki off on Sunday, we had a little time at the cabin with Zuzia. While Zuzia loved that place she couldn't wait to go to the camp on Tuesday, and there were just three of us.
We can't believe how fast the time went. Between walks, boating, swimming and hiking plus some Olympics via internet ( no TV there !!! ), the time flew.
But it was time very well spent :)
