You can always learn something new about the people you thought you knew everthing about.

We decided to go to Hanging Rock State Park this weekend for a hike. (If you click on this link, you can see the "hanging rock" that these pictures were taken on.  The fact that we were standing out on this rock isn't noticeable in my pictures.)

The weather was perfect - breezy, no humidity, sunny.  So hiking we went!

We decided to take the short trail.  It was 1.3 miles in each direction.  What I didn't realize at the time was that the last half mile of the hike would be straight up! 

But it was worth it.  We got some gorgeous views when we made it to the top.






I learned something abuot my children on this hike. 

One who is normally fearful of everything was fearless this high up and was not afraid of heights at all.

The other child who normally goes forward with minimal fear of anything hung back and discovered a fear of heights.

Can you guess which is which?!

Beautiful - but I would have a hard time because I don't like heights either. I'm thinking it's Peter who had the fear this time?
