Hiking Big Mountain

I had wanted to go with her many times, but somehow didn’t make it before the snow came last year. This year I was determined! The first hike of the season was on Allison’s birthday, but I made the second hike.

I knew her reputation… everyone warned me that my friend flew up the mountain! But, I didn’t know that meant straight up. I assumed there would be switchbacks. “That’s for the bikers,” she told me. Ha!

Somehow I made it and actually felt pretty good! There was still some snow patches up top, which made me feel even more accomplished.

We returned to her house at lunch time, but even their hunger couldn’t stop the boys from going in the pond before we left. It was a hot day, and the cold water felt amazing, I am sure. They even caught a frog!

Looking forward to more hiking this summer since we no longer have to spend the summer unpacking! (And did you see the bald eagle??)

I love the color orange, summer fruit, crisp fall evenings, snow-covered mountains, and spring flowers. I LOVE my Jesus, my family, and my home... all things craft-related, cooking, and creating make me smile. You can often find me coloring on my walls with chalk, waltzing through Trader Joe's looking for the monkey with my little ones, dancing through our house to blasting worship music, or blogging while sipping coffee.
