Four of us set out for Silver Bump. A simple, 3 hour snowshoe, I told Simon.
Ha! I forgot to take snow into account and the fact that no one had been up that way probably all winter. We broke trail through pretty deep snow. and, of course, found that the summer trail wasn’t necessarily a good idea in the winter.
So our 3 hour hike took almost 5 hours and at least three of us hadn’t thought to bring lunch. Or snacks.
A huge shout-out to Barbara who shared her energy bars! life savers.
And then I came home to a warm house and an even warmer hug. And lunch (whew!) and a nap and a bath.
So now I have one more day here. On Wednesady we head back to the coast.
And only three weeks after that I’ll be back here again. Two things immediately come to mind about being here. One – how beautiful it is here and how much I now embrace it. Two (and most important) – how much I love Simon and how right it feels to be with him – to belong to him. Simon is my home.
