White Queen

The best day!

Glorious. Warm. Sunny. And a day hiking with my Sweetie. We don’t get to do it often enough and today was wonderful. There was hiking and gazing in wonder at the beauty around us and laughing and lots of snogging.

This was the first time I’ve been on this trail that I helped flag and route last year. The trail builder did a stellar job! What a delight!

The top was still pretty snowy but not nearly as much as we had on Jardine and even Lightning Strike. Simon was wearing his five fingers with no socks so he had the lovely cold/hot spa treatment on the mountain – for free!

We saw a black plumed ptarmigan and a hoary marmot – heard a ton of birds – revelled in the bear grass and glacier lilies – views to die for.

Just a wonderful day!

Feeling the joy. Also feeling the love. It occurred to me while I was having my bath how lucky I am to be here with Simon. I came very close to not having this. And yet – here we are. Our love was strong enough to survive the storms.
