Our family absolutely loves to get out and hike together.  God's creation is amazing!!  Today was around 96 degrees, but it didn't feel too bad through the woods.  These pictures were taken at William B. Umstead State Park near Raleigh.  The trail we chose was a little over 5 miles and there was a lot to see do along the way!  What a perfect day! (other than the heat).

Ready to hike!

About a mile in, the shoes and socks came off!
Cooling off in the creek.

Neat rocks to climb
The slippery log that led to a little "island' area to explore

Another view down the creek

This was as far as I got on the slippery log before I turned around
Katie went over to the "island" a different way

Phew! That was a steap climb!

  1. I am so glad you all had a great day. Our family loves to hike. The extreme weather this summer and my health have kept us from being able to hike for awhile. I look forward to being able to do it again soon.
