Jerry stopped so I could take a picture of Horn Peak Mountain
Horn Peak Mountain, in Custer County, is 13, 450 feet high.
The children are growing and I see one more! Ted, Tim, Christy, Pam and one more…Robby!
Jerry, the three older kids and I all wanted to go for a hike and climb Horn Mountain. Christy wanted to go too but we all felt she was too young. We convinced her to stay home with Grandma and Grandpa and help out with Robby. With the convincing came the promise to let her climb this huge boulder.
We hiked through woods, across a meadow, followed a stream, hiked above the tree line and threw snowballs. We stopped to rest and eat a snack. I looked behind me…what? Looking across I saw the peak of the mountain. Oh no, we knew we’d never make it… We sat there considering what to do and decided we’d better head back down while we still had a path to follow and the mountain stream or we’d end up lost!
Horse riding again! Robby is on Pam’s horse. The nearby Horn Creek Ranch has great riding trails.
Just look how all the kids have grown! Tim, cousin Andy, Ted, Robby and Pam. In front are cousin Susan and Christy.
We still had the same pickup and camper.
