Nancy sent chocolate peanut butter cookies with Andy (like the Girl Scout ones, except chocolate) and Adele made a smore with one of them and one oatmeal chocolate cookie. Smart girl.

Andy did his own food on this trip. Oatmeal with raisins, which he adds while it's cooking, much to Janet's chagrin as a child.

We saw this logging truck come by empty as we were getting up, and then back the other way totally full during breakfast.

I told Lewis last time that when we came back he could climb every rock. He did. This is the biggest one he found.

I decided to join my kiddos on top. The Packs came hiking down the trail while we were up there.

Lots of gorgeous views on the way up. We watched some rain clouds make their way towards us.
Kyle and Grandpa were figuring out which bodies of water were which, and hunting for the Hudson, which runs nearby but can't easily be seen.

We beat the rain by ten minutes, though it only lightly sprinkled on us on the way down.
It wasn't as windy this trip, but it was still more comfortable in the lee of the rock.
