Yesterday was Father’s Day (which you were already aware of, even if you live under a rock). SuperDad wanted to hike a section of the Appalachian Trail near us.

I left these 4 at the end of a steep, narrow, gravel road to start their hike. Don’t let the looks on the faces of those red-shirted boys fool you. They were happy to begin hiking — they just don’t like posing for pictures. SuperDad actually hoped it would rain because it hasn’t rained enough around here lately. Humorous-Juniorous and I drove to our usual hop-on point of the A.T. with the plan of meeting them halfway.
It was enjoyable to hike with H-J because he didn’t mind my stopping to take pictures, which makes him just about the perfect hiking buddy!
I took the following group of pictures for this week’s GREEN theme over at Carmi’s Thematic Photographic.
Because I had paused to take a 15 minute nap and wrap up SuperDad’s Father’s Day gift, his hiking group had a 90 minute head-start on us, but H-J and I still managed to meet them at the rock cropping overlook a couple of miles away from where we parked.
Happy Father’s Day to SuperDad
What a great way to celebrate Father’s Day.
I am glad you told us that they were actually happy to be hiking, because they sure don’t look it here!
Very good-looking family you have!
what a great day!!
what a nice father’s day!! my dad chose to stay home with all of us… we spent most of the day watching mythbusters 😉
That’s one of the guys’ favorite shows here. 🙂
Oh my goodness, your son is maybe talle than his dad?
Hey, our wwc entry tomorow is dedicated to you….
Gary, both of the older boys are taller than SuperDad! 😀
Fantastic bit of greenery and a Super Dad.
That’s a great idea to split up when you have people operating at different speeds. The camera is an excellent excuse to take a breather I’ve found!
You already know how lucky you are to have a good husband – now go and give him a big hug from someone who wasn’t as lucky!
(I know, I’m a bit late, but take it for what it’s worth!)
I gave him a big hug when he walked in the door tonight. I was incredibly glad to see him after hearing the news reports of a commuter train crash.
Sounds like a fun day!!
Sounds like you had a great day and those are wonderful photos.
That’s a great way to celebrate the day. And your green photos were perfect.
Awesome. It’s so green! What a wonderful way to spend Father’s Day!
