Went for a walk yesterday and hiked to the top of it then. I can't believe 'ME' made it both days without falling on my backside. Yesterday was to see if I could do it on my own. Today we were slate hunting for the patio. To steep of a climb to bring any of it down that we did find. Now that the Glade has been bushwhacked it was a little easier to get to our starting point.( the step climb) For a mid fortyish and mid sixtyish women we did pretty good. We knee and hand climbed for the steepest part, only slide back down once I didn't have good footing and only slid a few feet. It was amazing! I think that's the best part of owning land is being able to walk & explore it and feel comfortable doing it.
this year ought to be a bumper crop of blackberries, cause we sure have a lot of them. The higher we went the more prickly they got. And the mushrooms on the old fallen trees were huge. I know you can eat them, but not sure on how to fix them so they would not be woody tasting.
All in all it was a great Sunday afternoon. We camp stove fixed vegetable beef soup, there is nothing like eating outside on a spring day.
Here are some picture of our day on our mountain. I'll explain as I go.
These two pictures are looking back down the mountain. Whatever were we thinking???
A pretty little flower.
And lastly a Fox. This was the first we saw..haven't had any for a while as we had a coyote problem last year.
Oh, yeah our mountain is only at elevations of about 1500 feet at the highest ridge.
But to us it was a worthy climb. Glad to know we still Got It!!
