Destruction

If it weren’t for pesky moles and 4 dogs we would have a pristine yard.

Nightly Event

Every night James and Taffy play….and they play really rough.  Thankfully the display of teeth is all in fun and no one gets hurt.

New Camera

My wonderful husband surprised me with a new camera.  He got me a Nikon D7200.  It has a lot of bells and whistles that are over my head.  So I will be posting a bunch of pictures as I try to get acquainted  with my new toy.  Here is my first sampling.

Icicle Gorge Trail

Ok, so we are back to the vacation pictures.  Glen and I decided to hike an easier trail, so we decided on the Icicle Gorge Trail.  It is rated at a whopping 2 out of 5 on difficulty.

As you can see the tail was so much smoother and easier to hike.

The layers in the rock were simply amazing.

Since the hiking was nice and easy we could enjoy the views.

Glen decided to check and see how cold the water was.  He said it was cold but felt really good.  I am anti-cold water, so I did not soak my feet.

Again, fantastic views.

Foster Failure

Glen and I decided to adopt our foster dog, James.  Calling it a failure doesn’t really ring true.  He is getting a forever home and we are getting a great dog that already fits very well with our family.

James looks pretty happy about it.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
