Bald Mountain

Doug was in Maine last week with his boss and they had so many farms to cover they weren't suppose to be back until Saturday evening.  God was good and allowed things to go smoothly and he was actually home Friday night around 11:30!  We woke up Saturday morning after getting to sleep in a bit...we haven't done that in FOREVER...and Doug really wanted to go hike a mountain.  So we got ready and headed to Old Forge to climb Bald Mountain.  It was peak weekend so EVERYONE was there, we were never climbing by ourselves.  There were so many dogs and kids and babies, even tiny ones in packs and wraps I was really surprised.  But it wasn't bad, everyone was kind and the dogs were all well behaved.  So here is what we got to see...

I'm not sure what Marissa is doing in these pictures LOL  She is sitting like I forced her there!

This was our view at the top

We walked past the opening and planned on keeping going...the trail was only about a mile up.  Molly started to follow and then found this wet muddy area and there she laid.  We didn't want to push it and end up having to carry her back down!  So we let her rest and then turned around.

And we were able to get a family picture :)

We stayed on the trail pretty good on the way up, but on the way down Madalyn tried to find every other "path" she could :)  One path had this cool branch so she had to climb it...

Marissa's turn!

Even Chloe climbed it ;)

Heading back down, or trying to decide the best way to do so

We had an awesome day and I can't wait to go back again!
