What is somewhat less known is that the entire mountain is an open space park with several dog-friendly trails that encircle the hill and lead to the summit. On this bright and breezy Friday afternoon I loaded both kids, a bag of trail mix and the dog into the minivan for a quick post-school day, end-of-week peak bag. A few photos from the adventure give you a feel for the experience:

This latest backyard adventure is another success story in our Making Mountains out of Molehills year and adds another kid-friendly summit to our list of have-dones and had-so-much-fun-we-will-do-it-agains. Thank goodness for strong little legs, epic views and daylight savings!
