While staying with my parents over the Thanksgiving Holiday we decided to take a hike. It was actually my Dad's idea since he can't stand it when we just sit around at home and do nothing. He just isn't the type of person to sit around at all. I think it has something to do with the fact that when he sits down for any amount of time he almost always ends up dozing off. So he initiated a hike for us and we called the cousins to come and go with us.
Our destination was Table Top mountain. It is an old lava flow that filled a river and then over time the edges have worn away leaving a large flat volcanic mountain that runs through their small town.
Ian also informed me that this can count toward his hiking beltloop for cub scouts. Always looking for ways to make everything count double.
