This is one happy little hiker (below)! We have always enjoyed hiking but since we got Addy the hiking has become a weekly tradition. It has been a great way to put studying on pause and be outside doing something healthy. So naturally it would not have been a complete trip unless Lauren searched for the best possible trail. We hiked up North Trail for a round trip of six miles in perfect weather. In total it took us about four hours with a breathtaking lunch break at the top. The trail was manageable with a couple of steep rocky portions for good measure.

I was obsessed with these mossy roots
Addy met some very interesting new friends upstate including a frog, wild turkeys and falcon.
