Hiking

Mount Persis

I’m not even going to come up with an excuse for being behind on posts again since that seems to be the normal state of affairs around here, so instead I’ll just share hiking photos from this weekend:

Mount Persis Following in my footsteps

On Saturday JK and I took little Wellington to Mount Persis, the big peak in the first photo. This was his first real snow hike (albeit in very warm temperatures), so we were excited to see that he did really, really well. He got cold in the wind on the summit, but the snow didn’t really seem to bother him at all. Success!

ALW peaks

The hike itself was gorgeous, with all sorts of rugged peaks popping out everywhere and a fun climber’s trail. I tend to prefer going short and steep rather than walking on gentle forest roads for hours on end, so this was right up my alley. It was great to be out on the trail again and feeling great despite not seeing the inside of a gym for over a month – I lost my workout mojo once I stopped training for Mount Baker, so I need a new, concrete goal to work towards. Ponder ponder…

Mighty mountain men

Wellie is still masquerading as a real dog and spent most of his time on the summit chewing on a stick. I think I like him. ;)

Mountains as far as the eye can see...

    for the gazillionth time, I’ll just start by saying you lead such an admirably adventurous life. YOU GO GIRL! I am so proud of you, and I love seeing the sites through your photos that I’d never see in a million years otherwise! :)
