Well, I had so much fun on my hike Thursday, that I decided to do it again. This time DaNece and Scrappy joined, and we opted to take our big packs, lightly loaded to get used to carrying weight. We hit the trail at around noon, and it was sunny and blue skies. By the time we turned around (2:00) to head home it was gray, overcast, and COLD!! We still had a blast though.
Family portrait, dang I look like a freakin giant!:
