No, this photo was not taken recently – but it may be what we’ll be hiking into on saturday.
This is near the top of the Cameron Lake trail on Mount Arrowsmith. We’ve decided to go for it on Saturday, no matter what the weather. EVery week, we say we’re going to do it, and every week we put it off because the forecast is awful. Well, we have “awful weather” gear – so we’re going.
Actually, I took this photo late last fall – the first snowfall on the mountain. It was beautiful.
It’s been a very busy week and it’s not going to let up much before the end of the day tomorrow. A strenuous hike is just what I need. It’s going to be huge fun.
I’ve been keeping my equilibrium through all the “bad news” all week – hope this is a good sign. The media these days likes to scream “fire!” at every available opportunity. The idea is not to panic. I won’t I will stay grounded – so there.
One thought: I finished Dan Brown’s new book, “Inferno,” which is as bad or worse than his other books. The writing is cliché riddled and just plain awful. However, if it does one thing, I hope it does get people thinking about the issue of over-population. That is the elephant in the room, of course. There is a simple solution: stop having babies. Oh wait, first we have to convince the Catholic church to stop telling people to have more babies. (that last sentence was in sarcasm font.)
