the hike

Family reunion last weekend.

The photo above is taken at a spot in the middle of the woods that used to be known locally as "The Steps." Our ancestors (some of them pictured here, circa 1908) and neighboring prairie folk would hike there on camping trips.

So what did we do on our family reunion? We went searching for the Steps. We found them.
