Trip to the Charcoal Kilns

We had worked so hard yesterday that we decided to take the afternoon and go for a quick ride somewhere close to home. The charcoal Kilns were on our list of places we wanted to visit this summer so we headed out. Saddling up. Helmets? check. Picnic? check. Wait is that rain???? Oh well, it will keep the dust down.
Zachary, because of his broken arm had to give up the idea of his dirt bike and ride in the granny wagon with mom. From that cheesy smile I'm a guessing he is not so sure he can trust my driving anymore than his.

These things were amazing 800 cords of wood turned into charcoal on a weekly basis.. and Berry forever fighting his shoe laces.

Wind blown but beautiful at the entrance to one of the kilns.

" Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?"
....... Okay, so it wasn't anything wonderful like that, just the top hole where they stuffed the wood in. But it was still pretty neat.

Beautiful scenery, wonderful company. Just truly a peaceful and refreshing day.
Thank you, Lord.
