My kid’s favorite activity, hands down, is skipping rocks. Really for the younger ones: throwing rocks. Except in the heat of summer, lakes around here tend to run on the cold side. But the kids LOVE to go down to the water. When the water levels are low, perfect skipping rocks are plentiful!
The Hubs is a talented rock skipper, much to the kids delight. I mostly take in the scenery and the cool delicious spring air. When the breeze comes off the mountains it smells like fresh pine sap, rain, and flowers. That is tough to beat. Other than the perfectly clear starry nights, I miss the smell of Montana most when we are away.
