Yesterday early in the morning I took another run at the West Slabs of Olympus, this time alone. It was quiet and the rock was cool with the autumn leaves changing below me. In the afternoon after soccer games, skate boarding lessons and cleaning bathrooms, my sons and I did some climbing on the local granitic crags. My boys are still young but are developing a love and respect for the beauty of nature and the adventure that each day in the mountains provides.
