Our original intention had been Mount Becher – but it was pouring rain. So we went with Plan B. There is always a Plan B.
That turned out to be the Lake Trail on Maple Mountain – a really good rainy day hike. I had the best company I can imagine: Simon (of course) and his beautiful daughter, Alisa.
And really, there isn’t much more to say. I thought this would be my first hike without once taking out my camera – just because of the rain. However, shortly after we started our trek down the climbing trail, the rain stopped and I was mesmerized by the beauty of the mist. I am so so glad that Simon encouraged me to go ahead and get busy with the camera – look at the beauty we hiked through!
So – a beautiful day.
And it promises to be a beautiful night. (even though I am using the word “beauty” much too often and a good writer would go back and edit and insert synonyms – and I’m not going to because I don’t care – so there!)
