In my happy place today – in other words, up on a trail in the mountains – expansive views and ancient trees (Yes I did hug one and petted and spoke to several others). Also happy to have Abby with me – my hiking buddy for so many years. And she was happy too: tail wagging all the way – especially when we stopped for lunch and also especially on the way down.
It was perfect indian summer. And after visiting the cedars and the lake, Tammy and I got back to the bench at the lookout just in time for a wonderful lunch. I’m pretty sure I could have sat there all day.
