Farther along on our hike, we started to ascend an incline.  As you can see, the floor of the forest continues to be moss-covered, but there are some flowers that peek through.

We were invited to watch our friend’s home and family while they were away on business and a wedding of one of their family members.  There three children were really great.  They seldom fought, listened well, and showed us around their neighborhood.  You could tell they were used to walking because they would walk, run, and still have plenty of energy to do more.  It was quite fun watching them.
