Nights 95 and 96

Hello and welcome back!

First, welcome to the new reader from Malaysia! I've heard that Malaysia is really hot. We could have used that warmth here a few months ago...

Mt. Kilimanjaro
The answer to Friday's trivia question is Tanzania (dad insisted it was Kenya, but he was wrong). Mt. Kilimanjaro is 19,341 feet tall, and the youngest person to climb it was just 8 years old.

Yesterday my whole family hiked together, because it was in the 60s and sunny. We just went around the field to the pond where the tree frogs were at their loudest.

Last night it was in the low 50s. Because of the warm weather, I slept underneath the unzipped 40 degree bag and without a RidgeRest (which insulates you a tiny bit). Maisy slept with me again.  She went out to the tent with me around 10:00, and we slept in until about 7:00 this morning.

J-- Going the Hard Way
Dad, J, and I hiked down to the pond after dinner tonight. J especially had a lot of fun. Coming up out of the hollow where the creek flows to the pond, he insisted on climbing over a bunch of dead logs, even though there was a clear path just to his right.

Maisy wandered off while we were hiking, and as of this minute she still hasn't come home. I'm sure she will, though.  She knows where we live, and she has to come home if she wants dinner!

Thanks for reading!
