Here's Cammie shortly after we got up on the path:
Isn't that a great area?!!? We were in the middle of NOWHERE! Or at least it looks like it, right? Pan over and take a look at me:
OK, not the middle of nowhere quite yet! But let's keep going!
Here's a cool view of the roundabout we can just see off our deck:
We kept going up and up and up and around, weaving through the hills. We eventually got to a little rest spot. I put my feety-feet up on a bench and struck a pose:
Mom said that's guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face!
Since we were taking a little break, I decided to make myself comfy.
|Me and Dad|
We have no idea what that caulking gun is doing there, but I made sure to leave it alone.
OK, let's get going!
We walked a lot more and found a brand new road. We thought we should try it out.
We could see forever up there! Cam and I were having such a great time!
So were Mom and Dad!
Mom said it was great. Especially because "someone" seemed to be getting tired.
|"Isn't this great, Cam?!?!"|
"Hmm... 'someone' is getting a bit tired! I didn't think of that!"
|"Yeah! This is great!"|
"You betcha, Mom!"
Mom said all of us benefit from the long family walks: it's quality time together, we see beautiful things, and we all get good exercise. And Dad said the good news was that since the way out had been almost all uphill, the way home was going to be a lot easier!
|"Let's head back!"|
Cam and I are great personal trainers, aren't we?
I hope our Kansas scenery helped you feel more serene! Mom charged her camera battery full up when we got home, so we'll head back up there with her soon. I wonder if the birds will still be there?
