Longing for sunshine and long hikes

it was lovely for a few days which really played with my emotions

I didn't post this last Summer so I thought I would do it now while I'm dreaming of warmer weather and trying not to cut myself the next time it snows.

If I ever become a millionaire I'm so doing the summer house thing I don't care how big of a douche bag I look like.

We went on an incredibly long hike this Summer up to where we were engaged on August 1st, 2008. It's called Bells Canyon. Some people have died up here trying to cross the water fall this last year. There was a small memorial at the beginning of the hike. It definitely makes you think twice about doing something stupid while you're up there. We did not try and cross the water fall. What made it more grueling and longer was that we decided that we wanted to try and make it higher plus we heard there was a water fall up higher than the one we were engaged next to before. I was so tired by the end of this hike I wanted to die. It's funny I feel that way after most hikes but I still feel invigorated and so accomplished.

Here it is in pictures.

This little lake was full two years ago and it was practically empty this time

all done and very sweaty

Hope it's not too long before we get to do this again.

The pictures are gorgeous! It's making me wish that we didn't just get a fresh dusting of snow last night. I miss summer!

Let's not talk about summer. I just stopped taking my antidepressants. (Quitting your hell-hole of a job will do that to you, I guess!)

You and Ty are so perfect for each other, it's ridiculous. And I seriously mean that in the best way possible. You are a great couple!

Angela - I miss Summer too so bad! Thanks!

Kendahl - I'm sorry if I'm not helping with your sanity levels, lol. Thanks so much for saying that about us - it means a lot. You're way too kind. I think we are pretty perfect each other too.

Damn, even while hiking you still manage to look pretty!

These pictures are breath-taking. I don't blame you for being anxious to go back.
