Weekend hike

Yesterday we hiked from Sankhu to Nagarkot (link to map, we didn't make it all the way to Hotel Sunrise though).  We hired a school van to take us to the starting point and pick us up at the end.  The scenery was beautiful and it was great to get out of the city, my first time to do so in fact (Jeremiah's gotten out on a number of bike rides so he was excited for me to see it).  The hike was uphill, and by the end we were exhausted, but it felt good to be active.  Jeremiah was awesome (even after his quick food poisoning bout the previous night) and carried Tegan on his back the whole way and for almost the whole 3-4 hours we walked she was content to hang out up there and see the sights.

Clearly from the photos I took, you can tell I was enamored with all the green.  It's such a stark contrast to the concrete and construction rubble of the city.  We will be going back out soon for more hikes for sure!

PS - Dad, that sun shade on the carrier was amazing.  She would have fried without it!
