Topics I've Started

Hike On July 4Th, Mirror Lake. Pics.

06 July 2016 - 09:14 PM

I started out the 4th with a hike up on Mt Hood up to Mirror Lake, then up to Tom, **** and Harry Mt above the lake. It is about a 6 mile total round trip hike and around a 1,600 ft elevation gain. It is one of my favorite hikes to do. It started out chilly in the upper 40's with fog but was almost cleared once we got to the top. You can see 6 mountains in the cascade range from the top on a clear day. The fog had cleared enough to see all of them but the views were stunning just the same. Now onto pics. 

 

First two pic's are of the wild rhodies in bloom.  Some of the rhodie bushes were quite a bit taller than me.

The trail on the way up from the lake to the ridge line. Notice the huge rhodie bush on the right. I am 5'6" and it was several feet taller than me.

Trail Ride, Mciver Park 6/21/16, Pics!

06 July 2016 - 01:23 AM

Finally getting a chance to upload and share a few pics. I went with a new friend and her friend to a local park and spent a few hours exploring their trails. They have added a couple new trails to the park as well as added several fun obstacles to do. The weather was great, the horses all did fantastic, I meet a new friend and we had a great day. Now onto a few pics. 

Heading out into the trails, this one follows along a large meadow.

Finally Friday!

27 May 2016 - 09:19 AM

So glad it's finally friday. Getting ready to head into work for the day then off for a long weekend. Good thing it's a long one as I still have lots of unpacking left to do. I will try to get some pics up once I finish getting my computer set up.
I went to the feed store on Wednesday and came home with another kitten. Poor little guy was the only one left out of his litter. He was alone in the free kitty cage crying. He is the sweetest little thing. Scared still but a real cuddly little cutie.
Hope everyone has a great day!

Garden Time!

23 February 2016 - 06:35 PM

Well almost spring and gardening time. This unusually nice day we are having here has me excited to start seeds, garden and flower planters. For seeds starts in the green house i will probably be doing: zucchini, cucumber, watermelon, a few different squashes, several varieties of tomatoes, plus hanging baskets with various flowers. Once its time to plant the garden come May, I will be doing corn, lettuce, carrots, beets, radish, beans, peas, and sunflowers to start with. I may add some other stuff depending on how much space i have. I have several long hanging  planters made from old gutters, not sure what I'm going to put in them yet. Any ideas? What is everyone planning on planting this year?
