Wanted to take advantage of cooler temps with rain day before. Caroline has two school friends (boys) that have hiked to the Quartz outcrop - so it was on her Kindergarten-bucket-list :lol: . George rode in the hiking house the whole time and I am not sure how Brad carried him up the last straight up stretch to the quartz outcrop. Caroline was so irritated at how slow we were getting to the top and then she loved climbing on the "white lava" as she called it of the quartz vein.

George brought his teddy with him and I bet there haven't been that many teddy bears on the quartz outcrop! We had a snack and looked up at Thompson Peak (which is now Caroline's new goal) - - and it clicked for her what those things are on top - for our cell phones. She has always called Thompson Peak "cake mountain" b/c it looks like birthday candles on a cake. So the illusion is gone but now the challenge is real. I think she could do it in the winter if I brought enough snacks and we stopped for breaks.

After the hike - home for lunch and nap. Nice to have so many trail so close to our house.
