The next time we visit Max Patch, it will not be in the middle of summer. It is a beautiful spot with 360 degree views and no shade. There were bees buzzing around, and Trip got stung while rescuing Shelby from one of them during our picnic. We did manage to have a lot of fun hiking on the bald mountain that is so reminiscent of the opening scene in The Sound of Music. Instead of singing "The Hills Are Alive" though, we belted out Shelby requests like Old McDonald.

Shelby did a bit of hiking too!
