Fall Hikes


Walking in the woods in the fall is so much fun especially if you’re surrounded by people you love. Last weekend while Chad and Devin were visiting from Dallas we were able to fit in a family hike by Lost Lake. It was a beautiful day for a hike with the trees starting to turn from green to bright orange, yellow and red.


Bryan pushed me in the Chairiot most of the way but when we were on the cross country ski trail we came to a hill and Mark offered to relieve Bryan for a while. As we started up the hill Chad thought he would help by taking hold of one of the handles then Bryan decided to push on Mark’s back to be helpful also. The result of their teamwork was that we all ended up on the ground and my Chairiot was on its back and I was looking up at the sky. It was all somewhat graceful and no one was hurt so we all laid there laughing. Thankfully my head was securely supported by my recently donated head rest which held my head firmly in place. As we continued our hike we talked about how grateful we were to Chip and Colleen VanderWier and all the people that contributed to the Chairiot project. I would not be hiking in the woods without this chair.

So I want to thank you all again.
