"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Hike to the Y

Last month, we started out the hiking season on the right foot by tackling the Y, a moderate hike:

We watched the sun go down, and laid upside-down (with the other two holding your ankles, just in case) to see the world from a disorienting angle. Have you ever done that? If you haven't, I think you should. It's absolutely thrilling! Then, with flashlights in hand, we traipsed down to our car to enjoy a hot cocoa bar and soak in the city lights. It was perfect weather, perfect company, and perfect lighting for silhouettes (in case you couldn't tell already.)


  1. I have never hiked the Y and I am totally planning on doing it this summer - without the children of course.

  2. hi laura, i stumbled onto your blog through my blog stats and i'm glad i did! your hike to the y sounds amazing. isn't it beautiful up there? once it gets warmer, i'm taking my boys hiking!
    xoxo, great little day
