Hawk Mountain

 We went north about an hour and a half today, with friends from church.  Hawk Mountain Sanctuary is a beautiful place with wonderful views.  



 




 Up at the North overlook - the hike up here almost killed me.  Wow - it is really is tough.  My friend Kelly and I both made it and are very proud of ourselves.




 I love this photo...these girls love their Daddy.


 Kyle had a wonderful time...he has so much energy!  


We got lots of exercise, perspired like crazy, saw a few broad winged hawks, but no bald eagles.  We had a very nice afternoon!

I am not sure if I would do this hike again, at this point in my life I would have to say 'no'.  But, I could enjoy sitting at the south overlook with a book, a thermos of tea, a blanket for cushioning...

I hear that November is the golden eagles month to migrate.....

  4. It was wonderful seeing the sights you saw w/o the exercise/perspiration, etc.!

    (I DO know it wasn't the same as actually being there...)

  6. Wow! My cap is tipped to anyone who made that climb. I had to laugh at the Bald Overlook photo. Very pretty spot on earth and I bet the kids had a fabulous time.
