do you guys want any pie?

We just rolled in from a 2 day hiking trip and the first thing I wanted to do (after showering thankfully for Lando) was look at the photos so I could feel like I was still there, maaaaaan this was a good trip. We headed out yesterday after church with our friends Tyler and Heather and hiked to lower palisades lake and set up camp for the night. We ate a solid meal of red curry from a cup and hot tamales and called it a night. (I tossed and turned all night convinced a bear would surely eat us in our sleep!) We got up and hiked to the upper lake, swam in the too cold water to a little island in the middle of the lake, fell asleep in the sun, fed chipmunks chex mix, SAW THREE MOOSE! and headed out. I really wished we would have planned to stay another day. I would say this is the prettiest place we've been in Idaho. The whole hike was along a river that led to the most amazing blue-green lakes, the wildflowers and vegetation we're practically overtaking the trail. My only qualm is that we should have brought more candy and I wish these photos did this place justice. 

(Here I am, typing up this blog post, my legs feel like jello and I'm beat. Lando comes in and asks "do you want to go on a walk?" What is wrong with this guy? He's a animal.)

The pic with feet hanging out of the tent just speaks to me somehow. :)
I predict that you guys end up seeing the entire world! So adventurous!

This looks like a dream.

Also, I, too, am always afraid of sleeping in a tent, but more of wilderness murderers than of bears. Pretty much the same result, though.

and by the way, that last photo is especially breathtaking. you're making me fall in love with idaho.

The first time I hiked to palisades lake was with my cousin and we stole Tyler's car to get there...okay so we didn't steal it, it was on loan. But I've always wanted to hike up there to stay a couple days!

Alison said...

I always wish that we had more candy on road trips and pretty much anytime actually. Your trip looks beautiful though. I want to do more camping and exploring.

Kathryn Melzer said...

Your pictures are breathtaking! Someday I want to learn how to be artful like that.

I love your adventures. One thing I wish about Ryan and mine 4 kidless years is that we enjoyed them more and did more weekend getaways instead of being so plain.

Talia Jensen said...
