This summer we did a lot of hiking up Bull Run Mountain because the weather was so mild. It is about a 5 mile hike roundtrip with tremendous views at the top. We took some of the Wilkinsons and also went with friends, and Cameron and I even did it by ourselves once. Fergus came when he was just a bitty thing and made it pretty far before we had to carry him. The kids do great as long as they have someone new to talk to to keep their mind off how steep and long it is. And playing in the creek on the way down gives them something to look forward to! And we always see a turtle or two! Can't wait to go up when the leaves are changing!
