hike: knob mountain / elkwallow trails, shenandoah national park, virginia

Saturday, 20 November 2010


it’s interesting how the camera only seems to capture when the lady sparkler is wearing the backpack.i’m calling this the last hike of the season — and while i hope it’s not actually going to turn out that way, it is getting pretty late into November. and, while we *are* taking the backpack to Costa Rica, based on the events of today i’m not convinced we’re going to use it much.

granted, sparklet had never been on a hike for longer than an hour and a half, and the lady sparkler had been on one hike since she got pregnant two years ago, but needless to say, it didn’t go especially well today.

note to self: (1) bring more food; (2) go over the trail details with your wife beforehand especially if she pretends not to care; (3) bring earplugs just in case you happen to fail on notes #1 and/or #2.
