Sticks and stones: A photo essay

The girls and I decided to climb a mountain on an early Fall Sunday afternoon. We grabbed our walking stick by the front door. Mine came from Cabela's. Charlotte the spider would say it's versatile - it has a compass, a wrist strap, a shoulder strap, and can expand to accommodate different hikers and terrain. The girls use the hiking sticks my husband made for them, using fallen limbs from the trees in our woods.

Climbing Kennesaw Mountain takes us about an hour, with frequent stops for water, breath and dog-petting.

And posing for pictures on rocks.
We take a break at the top of the mountain, admire the view, and each others' walking sticks...

We're already gathering the stones for their Christmas stockings.
