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.)
