October Adventures with Rhys 10.21.2017

 

Mount Katahdin

We took off at 8am, and got home at 8pm or… later Smile – the first time we pulled over (we drove up the 11) we found this decrepit house and ventured inside.  We snapped a few pictures and Rhys picked up a pool ball.  The reason for it I explained to him later.

It has always been a great fascination for my brother, Lee, this Mount Kat.  The apple didn’t fall far from the tree with his son, Rhys.    On our day trip (8+ hrs in the the car) we picked up an object, the #3 ball.  Using that we worked on perspective.  Make the back ground blurry or the foreground blurry.

The look on Rhys face when he saw it for the first time was beyond priceless.  He couldn’t get out of the car fast enough.  He was mesmerized, but not speechless.

The other stop we made was another abandoned house with a real outhouse – which, Rhys proclaimed “Someone pooped here!”

Railroad TRACKS!  Another love of us Grivois’ to be fair – one of the reasons I bought my home was 1 – the raspberry bushes and 2 – right next to the railroad tracks! – again, we worked on perspective.

Lil man was excited (The ride on Golden Road was very, very BUMPY!!) to get closer to the Mountain – then he stood there and looked – I had to prompt him to take pictures.  Was cute.

He just stood there looking – no pose, was just how he found himself.  His dad has a picture from close to the spot where he is standing on canvas that we gave him for their housewarming present.

We did more work on perspective and finally headed home.  We had a blast and we definitely need to hike it in a year or two.

Mount Katahdin

It’s a big old hunk of granite that reaches out towards the sky to tickle the blue and be the first to be wet on those days where the sky is grey.

My brother, Lee, has always had a fascination with Mount K, for as long as I can remember.  Which, of course, means that I like Mt. K too.
