The boy and the mountain

This Spring, I took the boy up his first real mountain – Ben A’an. I want to foster in him that same feeling of being connected with the landscape, of being free and confident to wander the outdoors and fill the lungs with Grade A fresh air. So on with the boots! Hiking boots for me, and Wellies for the boy.

I knew he’d be fine on Ben A’an as I’d been up it with my dad quite recently and was happy it would be within the boy’s capabilities. Here’s a picture I took climbing it with the eldest of our clan…


And here’s the youngest of our clan on the same hill…

So that’s three generations of us messing about in the hills. Which is very cool.

Running, rambling, cycling, swimming and scrambling to my heart's content. Happiest on a trail, with some jelly babies in my pocket.
