Into the mountains

It is summer, and it is hot. Time to get out of the city and up into the mountains! A week ago monday, we took our friends, the Reeses, up the Georgian Military Highway (the old road from Tbilisi to Russia) into the High Caucasus Mountains.

We chose a hike through the Khada Gorge, and it was just lovely. We hiked along this little river:

The boys threw rocks in it, then Liam ran through a mucky marshy spot and got all wet. He doesn't like being wet.

I washed his pants, socks, and shoes out in the river, then Paul hiked the whole rest of the way with Liam on his shoulders. Bless Paul and his shoulders.

We had a lovely picnic

And a fabulous day all in all.

Location:Khada gorge
