Miguel and Micah Conquer Fish Mountain

Since we arrived in the city a year and a half ago, Micah has been wanting to climb "Fish Mountain", which is what we call this hill. It isn't visible in this picture, but halfway up the side, there is the shape of a fish laid out in white rocks. It is said that Christians in this part of the city have claimed this area for Christ, thus the Christian symbol of the fish. Micah got his wish this morning when Miguel took him up to the top.

Fish Mountain (during summer).

I think it took them about 30 minutes to get to the top.

The view to the east...beautiful!

Happy guys!

Fish Mountain is on the edge of the city...the other
side is just barren hills.
