We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

A Hike in the Hills

Yesterday we went hiking over in the foothills south of Boulder. I thought I'd tell the story in pictures.

At the beginning of the hike there were all of these small trees with all this new growth. I can't remember from last year what they are. The only plant I distinctly remember were the short apple trees that grew in the gully and made early mornings smell so good when they were in bloom, I doubt these are the.

Here is Kevin and Alder at the beginning of the hike. The Matron the rock formation behind them is where we hiked to.

You can't tell by looking at Kevin but it was really warm.

Alder as usual trying to taste his way through the day.

Alder doing his first boulder problem, we did not set this shot up.

Of course Kevin couldn't help moving him through all the moves.

What a perfect way to spend a Sunday.
