Blueberry Pickin'

Saturday Rhonda worked so Jubal and I went up to the highlands to pick some blueberries. After a lot of picking happened we got bored and decided to take a hike. The little hike turned into a big hike.
I know the area well and didn't need a map. It was great to be able to meander through the woods with Jubal. He is old enough that he enjoyed the walk and I only carried him once for about 10 yards to get past some rough stuff.
It was an awesome day to be in the mountains. Clear blue skies with white puffy clouds and the occasional dark great cloud blowing by.
When we finished I asked him if he wanted to go on a long hike again sometime. He said " no way"!!!! Funny kid.
We hiked over 3 miles with 500 ft elevation gain.
We were both tired by the time we got back to the truck.

Sunday consisted of working on the drainage around the house and finally building shelves in Jubal's closet.

Have a great day.
