The Mountains

We spent New Years in Highlands, N.C. with friends.  It was a much needed weekend of hikes, moonshine, football, s'mores, naps, pancakes, shopping and fires in the fireplace...

Here's a group shot, sans adult men, before a short hike to that waterfall in the background.

Here's a shot of the longer hike to the top of Whiteside Mountain.  You can probably spot the problem we encountered about halfway up.  Blues Traveler was right:  the mountains win again.  

But we did make it to the top...

...even Claire!


Back at the house, Riley and Claire try to keep the boys out of their castle.

Time for s'mores...

A table of bed-heads 

Lest you be concerned, we were protected in the event of attack by supervillain.
