Love This Man of Mine!

The enormity of the forest can be scary sometimes but when you have your Daddy by your side you can walk through most anything!

Listening to the forest groan was interesting… trees that have blown over, but are caught be other standing trees makes quite the scary noise.  I was glad to be walking in the daylight.  Under the cover of darkness those noises would have my brain going wild!

Fathers Day, his choice an overnight hike up the Icicle!  That boy of ours had other possible arrangements so the girlie and I took off with Dad to his favorite place the woods.

Hiking Season is Upon Us!

Some like the tropics and some like the pines,  I think I am a pine girl!  I do not, on the other hand like heights of any kind… clearly!  My husband went up on this log so of course I had to try!  Walked up it no problem… then it kind of bounced with me on it, waking in me my fear of heights.  My hubby is like just turn around and walk down.  Yeah, not gonna happen, I knew if I picked up one foot I was going to lose it.  So I proceeded to lower my self and scoot back down on my butt!  Can you see the fear!!!!

He Loves Me!!!

My husbands first job was a line cook at a German restaurant, he has enjoyed cooking ever since.  He can open a cupboard and pull this and that out and make a mouth-watering creation. I on the other hand open it and blank…  Good thing he didn’t have too many domestic requirements for marrying me!  He loves me, that is all that is needed and for me to love him back of course!  My son likes his cooking much more than he likes mine!  That’s fine, I will do the dishes.

Hiking, Hiking, Can’t Wait To Get Back At It!

Just one of the amazing views that the camera could not do justice! but it gives you a good idea of what it was like in person.

My best friend, her daughter and I hiked around Mt. Rainier last summer in 9 days on the 93 mile Wonderland Trail!  It was so much fun!  We had one meltdown day and the rest of the time it was a blast.  It was so beautiful, we totally anticipated rain but the Lord was good to us and it only rained at night after we had the tent set up and had our dinner.

There was so much to see, my friend loved all the mushrooms and had to take a picture of just about every one we came across.  So yeah, I have a folder for just the Wonderland mushrooms.  🙂 We did see some pretty cool ones though.

I think this Screams "Caution do not eat me!"

Can’t wait to get back out there, The Northern Loop trail is next on the girls hiking list around Rainier.
