As you know, we celebrated Kylo Ren’s 3rd birthday this past Thursday. On Saturday, we were able to get out for a birthday adventure with Kylo and Sophie. We first stopped by a cute, little park in downtown Macon. Kylo isn’t really a big fan of urban adventures, but we are working to get him more acclimated to that kind of thing. While Sophie enjoyed the park, Kylo Ren just sat at the top of the slide and observed his surroundings. As soon as a family with kids arrived, he made it clear he was ready to go.
After leaving the park, we headed to a new hiking spot we recently discovered – Brown’s Mount. The hike leads up a limestone-capped mount that rises above the Ocmulgee River basin and provides an awesome view of the surrounding areas. Quiet, woodsy, hiking adventures are Kylo Ren’s favorite, so he was definitely in his element with this trip. As soon as he saw the trail, he hit it and started trekking.
He took a particular liking to all the fallen trees that we passed along the way. He wanted to stop and investigate each one by walking their length.
Sophie followed along pretty well for a while. She eventually decided she’d had enough walking though and plopped down in the middle of the trail. She got carried the rest of the way, which she thankfully doesn’t mind.
It was an enjoyable hike and was only about a mile long. Kylo and Sophie enjoyed exploring and taking in all the sights, sounds, and smells.
We finally reached the top of the mount and sat down on a bench to enjoy the view. It really was neat. We were able to see miles and miles into the distance and could pick out other Macon landmarks down below. It’s the closest thing we’ll get to a mountain-top view here in Middle Georgia!
We look forward to visiting Brown’s Mount again soon. There are other off-shoot hiking trails that we didn’t get to explore this time around, so there’s still more to see.
