Welcome Summer!

Summer has finally arrived and we are soaking in every moment of it before our long awaited John Muir Trail trek.
We've gone on a couple more training hikes in preparation for the JMT

Here we are on Memorial Day weekend before heading to Coloumbine Springs for the night. We thought it would be super crowded but thankfully were the only ones at our site.

My lovely husband Mark showing off some of his new hiking gear!! Straight out of a REI magazine!

In true Bear Grylls fashion, Mark dug to find a water source. He followed the dry creek bed and when he saw a damp spot, he dug down and found a good amount of water. We were relieved to have a good flow!

Here we are on the top of Limber Pine Bench.
