Hike 6 is done. The whole family hiked the Kame Terrace Trail at Lapham Peak.
One of our favorite spots at Lapham Peak is the butterfly garden. The tulips were beautiful. The trail itself is one we have walked before. I always find it pleasurable to return to trails in different seasons, to observe change, and really soak in what seasons mean. Sometimes this means a change in my own viewpoint. The last time I had hiked Kame Terrace I had just started hiking. What a difference 9 months makes! This time I felt confident in myself and my children. I knew that even if it had just been me that we would have been able to handle it.
Total Mileage so far: 9.75
“Hail all true and grounded beings
in all directions, in all the realms of form,
of no-form, or of hot desire
hail all noble woke-up big-heart beings;
hail—great wisdom of the path that goes beyond… “-Gary Synder
