I've lived in Maine for 10 years (in November). It seems like 10 years is not that long ago, and yet because so much has changed in my life in those 10 years, it seems more like a whirlwind.
|Hiking to the Big huge rock!|
Anyway - in all the (almost) 10 years I've lived here, I've never hiked Bradbury Mountain...that is until we decided to go on a whim. We grabbed the girls - and I being my prepared (72 hour kit - mormon self)...packed some provisions like toilet paper...high energy bars and the like! I also texted my sister (who lives way to far away in case of an emergency) - to let her know where we were going and when we'd be back!
|My girls staying well hydrated! (please be respectful and don't copy any of these photos of my children)|
When we got there and finished the hike in way less time than I thought it would take, while stopping to take tons of mommy photos, I thought maybe I overpacked?! The good thing is - you never know and it's better to be over-prepared, than under-prepared!
Here's a look at some of my photos.
