Mount Falcon Park - Part I

On Saturday, the five of us drove to Mount Falcon Park and hiked 3.2 miles in the mountains. This open space was once owned by John Brisben Walker, who built an amazing stone house (some call it a castle) on the property. The home burned in 1918, but some of the foundation, walls and fireplaces remain. We excitedly headed out on the Castle Trail.

Grady was alert and curious as we started the hike.

It's a bit difficult to pose for a picture while standing on a rocky incline with a baby in a backpack. It sure is fun, though. These shots were taken on the mountain just below the ruins of the house.

All the strenuous hiking wore Grady out.
