The kids climbed their first Mountain. John thinks it was more like a hill, but I'll tell you, it sure seemed like a mountain to us! The view was beautiful and it was a great reminder that our land should not be covered in strip malls. We are finding that Vt is much more rural than what we imagined and it is going to take some getting used to but I think we'll be able to do it. In the middle of the climb there was a graveyard (you can see it behind Sammy in one of the pictures). The dates on the stones went back to the 1850s - it was interesting thinking about the history of the area and discussing with the kids how this area played into Early America. The Zink kids have alot to learn about the NorthEast and are excited to do it!
