Father/ Son Hike

This past weekend Jim and Isaac joined the men from Jim's Sunday School class, and their sons, for a Father/ son hike on the Appalachian Trail. A portion of the famous trail runs quite near where we live. They geared up for an overnight stay with hiking both days. Some of the guys could only join them for the first day's hiking, but most braved the night and second day as well.

Jim brought not only sleeping equipment and food, but a book with amusing stories about camping to share around the fire. You can tell by the clothing and posture of the guys in this shot that it got pretty chilly once the sun went down!

Day two, seated on "the pinnacle", which is a pile of rocks at one high point along the trail.

Onward and upward!

What a spectacular view, makes the effort to reach it worthwhile.
