Adventures with Family

Wild Columbine
We have family visiting from California. They come every summer to get away from the heat there in to cool off in our more moderate summer weather. Well, they definitely get what they come for every time.! Our Niece, Meagan (on Johns side of the family) and her Aunt, Cynthia. We LOVE having them visit. It gives us incentive and excuses to go on adventures.  

Independence Mine
Like this adventure. We drove up to Hatcher Pass and walked around Independence Mine where they have just let things fall where they may. It's pretty neat. It started off cloudy and rainy, but by the time we finished the sun was shining and it was beautiful out.

love scenery
Coming here reminds me (every time) how much I should get out and for a hike. Though the walk around the mine felt like a small hike considering how out of shape I am in lately.
I will let the next few pictures speak for themselves, not that they are fabulous or anything like that...I only wish they were fabulous and were award winners. But in my mind, they remind me of lovely places I love to be. I want to have a wall somewhere in my house to hang all my "pieceful" pictures and sit to meditate in front of them.


Such a Poser! haha

Another poser!
Having family visit is great, it's making me feel good and normal.


  1. Big OOPS! I hate spelling errors and yet I made a big one. "Pieceful" should be "peaceful". So Sorry...I really do know how to spell and when I don't I know how to figure it out. Just got lazy in this post...or was I distracted by Damon and Bode, and all the goings on in my home? Yes, that's it. Thats my excuse. What's yours?

  2. you must have gone a lot further than we did when i was there. you can't drive that far right? it seems like we were at the end of the road when i was there in october. looks like a neat hike. love you, dad

  3. If I had eny mispelings, eye wasn't awarre of it.

  4. Oh, I love Hatcher's Pass! It's been a long time since I was there but we hiked back to a beautiful tarn that was the most beautiful turquoise color. I remember having to hike over huge boulders. I believe it was about 3 miles back but it seemed way further.

    I think your photos are stunning!
