One, Two, Three, HIKE!

Good follow-up to a night of ‘toasting’ with Big Dave’s bridge pals: We hiked up Rattlesnake Hill.

Encountered:

two big dogs,

several slews teens, all affectionately pawing one another,

and dozens of young parents urging their kids along with everything but electric cattle prods.

David, good host that he always is, carried a sack of drinks, so that when we got to the top we could have a Sprite Zero, a Bud Light, or a wee can of Strawberry Margarita, the latter two perhaps being somewhat in violation of trail rules…

…which may account for this image: The person behind the camera thought he was shooting a picture on my i-Phone but turned out to really be shooting a video.

Oh well! Love his laugh, anyway.Good old Charlie! Then David took this picture of toothy me. REALLY NICE WEEKEND WITH REALLY GOOD FRIENDS.. 🙂

  1. The hike sounds great (esp the margaritas!) but alas, the video is marked “private”. I especially liked the parental efforts to get the kids outdoors with everything but cattle prods. We took our kids hiking in the Rockies when they were small, and got to the top of a particularly spectacular peak. “Isn’t this beautiful?” we gasped. The kids looked around carefully. Nope — not a TV or computer monitor in sight. “Where?” they demanded.
