As is typical of historical sites here there are no guardrails, no paved paths, no facilities. The kids said there was a lot of sheer climbing up and down and some scary jumps. And it was very very hot. Brannick got heat stroke/exhaustion and spent the ride back trying not to toss his cookies. But he did say that he'd like to go back with the family, once the cooler weather comes.
Here is a picture of the horse back riding day. The kids had been pretty excited about this day but came back saying it was totally lame. I think they were expected a trail ride through the Turkish countryside and what they got was a 5 minute turn to walk around in a circle on a pony. Oh well. You can't have everything.
All in all they had a great week. And I think getting up and having something to do all day helped them with their sleep schedules as well. Next week is Wet and Wild Camp. Delaney, Carson and Evan are going to that. Rory will be going to Vacation Bible School for 3 hours every morning and hopefully Brannick will start his job.
