And then there was a hike...

In November the typical Lake Winnipesaukee activities are not very weather appropriate, but a slew of the Greeley clan found that a brisk morning hike (ok, maybe it wasn't "brisk" for all of us!) was the perfect way to spend the morning of Sarah & Liza's wedding. 

We started with layers; long sleeves, sweaters, jackets, hats, gloves, and a full pack of tissues.  By the time we hit the top of Mt. Major, we had shed most of our layers and used up most of the tissues (a sniffly bunch we were!).  However it didn't take long after reaching the top for the wind to practically smack us in the face and it was a race to see who could get their layers back on the fastest. 

The hike back down was even less "brisk" for some of us, but we learned that there is no shame in having to get on all fours to crawl down the rocks.  We're family, we hike together, we crawl together, it's rather cute. :)

Great conversations were had, laughs were shared, and we found ourselves ready for hot showers, but not before chowing down on pancakes, omelets, sandwiches, home fries, and hamburgers at a local diner.  Hey, we earned it!
