I feel a little ache in my heart as I post this......
going through these photos makes me want to go back.
I have never been anywhere like this in my life--
and to be there with just my little family was absolute perfection.
We spent the entire day exploring.
I was so proud of my Littles--their little legs carried them over five miles in one day.
through, across, in streams.
over and under fallen trees.
It's quiet out there.
You would think,
that after being out there all day,
you'd start to get used to it.
we were constantly amazed,
over and over and over,
at how grand
We never grew tired of it.
There was just something about it....
....something that couldn't be captured by any piece of modern day gadgetry.
We took a bit with us as we left.
and I can't wait to go back and experience it again.
