A Sunday Hike

The weather was (and still is) beautiful today, so we went for a hike up Bald Hill.

It starts on a long paved trail from the parking lot.

The hill, she is somewhat bald, no?

Henry and I steamed up the hill while Felice and Max ambled.

The woods are cool and green.

Marys Peak still has some snow.

Those people were having a loud discussion about "Iron Man".

Looking towards our house, which is hidden behind the small brown rise in the center.

Southeast into the valley.

We tried to take some family pictures.

The girl behind me was writing secrets in her diary.

We all enjoyed a juice box.

That housing development is relatively new.

No, it's not an elliptical UFO, but an attempt to show that through the haze you could just make out snow on the Cascades.

A beautiful flower. What is it? I have no idea.

Beware of things trying to eat you!

All the people in this picture were using their cell phones. The one on the left was having a gregariously emphatic conversation in Russian.

Anyway, we're a bit exhausted from the moderate exercise but had a lovely time out in nature.

I got a kick out of the last photo of the three hikers all on their cell phones. Ha. Getting away from it all...

Derrick is out of town all week, but I did receive the package you sent to him. He will be oh so happy to see it when he gets home.
