It's up, up, up the hill we go!

(You might've noticed the subtle Lord of the Rings reference in the title there...heh heh) A few days ago Dad, Jake, Luke, Carey and I climbed the big hill that's right near our house.  I thought y'all would like to see a few pictures!  In a 1\2 mile, we had a 500 ft. ascent.  We just had our rainy season, so things are still lush and green.  I'm not really looking forward to when it gets brown and scrubby...

 The view from pretty near the top - gorgeous!

 The rocks are huge!

I was going to do a recap of last week, but I'm pooped and we're getting up to go for a run in the morning, so I think I'll hold off for now!  Also, we got an email from the Embassy telling us that starting in a couple days, they might be cutting the power from 8am to 11pm, which means we'll only have power (aka internet) during the we'll see if that actually happens!

I'm thinking of starting either a Triple Tangent Tuesday, or a Three Things Thursday.  I've seen both - what do y'all think?
How is your week going so far? 


  1. wow! love those pics. the view looks amazing!

    I have not jumped on board the either of the TTTs yet...I should...but I get anxious that I will not be able to come up with three interesting things. haha. Definitely a dumb reason.

    They are going to shut down your internet!?! eeek. I do not know what I would do!

    Week is going pretty good so far. Already tired and it is only Tuesday...I better get some rest tonight so I can make it through the week :)

    have a great night!

  2. Such gorgeous pics!! I hope the internet thing works out for the best...

  3. Beautiful scenery! Sounds like a great hike. Hope the internet doesn't get cut, yikes!

  4. I love the pictures! Power outages are the worst especially when they are out of your control. Hopefully it won't have too much effect on the posting. Excited to hear your recap. I too have thought about starting the TTs but am suffering from a lack of motivation~

  5. Oh my goodness, gorgeous photos!!
    Wow, what adjustment-- no power for such long hours. I wonder what the reasoning is behind that. Money saving? Short supply?

  6. love the view! that reminds me of a point over here where i live! sights like that always make the hike worth it!

  7. Breathtaking! Hiking is one of my favorite favorite things to do, plus the reward of that view makes it 20x more fun.


I love your comments! Please keep things clean!
