Climbing the Hill

Do you see the hill in the center of the picture? It is on the east side of our community and is called Tator Hill by people who have lived here all their lives. It can be a spectacular sight whenever the sun is in a position to rise directly over the top.

A few years ago Popa took our older grandson to climb Tator Hill. I packed a sandwich for them and off they went for a climb that must have been like climbing Mt. Everest for the boy. They chose the side that was less steep, but they still had to sit and rest now and then. I asked Popa what it was like on the very top; he told me there were some rocks but also some flat places.

Memories were made that day, climbing the hill.
