We do love hiking to Pine Creek Falls. And now that Anders can reliably make it up there on his own, I can take the boys any time I want. The sign says it’s only a mile to the falls, but it sure seems longer than a mile–even when I used to hike it alone.
This was a really nice day. Hiking is great for us, because we are all in a good mood and having fun together. On this day we started out bundled up and hiking in 30 degrees. By the time we were done, it was 55. That’s autumn.

Not a bad way to travel.
Climbing more rocks. You can’t keep a good kid down.

Pine Creek Falls. It’s kind of small this time of year.
I attempt a group photo.
Anders isn’t the only rock climber in this family.

He sleeps; he drools.
A fallen tree blocks the trail, but it is no problem for Anders.
