Lost Lake

We went on a mountainous hiking adventure on Monday.

I was wearing sunglasses most of the time. Usually sunglasses give me a headache, but these garage sale glasses turn the world a magic color. My attempt to share the wonder:

Yes, I shot it through my sunglasses.

A good portion of our hike was through this cold white stuff or it's brother, cold melted snow water. The snow was heavy and wet, so there were many slips and occasional breaks through the crust into the freezing water underneath.

At long last we reached our goal, Lost Lake.

Yes, part of the lake is still icy on top.

I would love to go on this hike again in a month or so, when the snow is melted and the sun is hotter, which would make that cold mountain lake water feel really good!

Felix and I are going to go visit family in South Dakota tomorrow. I'll try to keep up here while I'm gone, but I can't make promises. I hope you're having a great week!

Oh man. How wonderful it must be to be out enjoying God's creation. I'm always stuck in the concrete jungle or retreating to my home. I definitely need to make it a point to get out to a national park or something.
