Snowshoe To Mirror Lake With Pics!

08 February 2016 - 12:16 AM

We had an unusually warm and sunny day here today so had to get out an enjoy it. I went with three friends and we snowshoed up to Mirror Lake on the south side of Mt Hood. The snow was fairly packed down so not to bad for getting through the trail. It was sunny, clear and 50 deg and the trail head. We ended up doing about 4 miles total today. This is one of my favorite hikes to do in the summer which i have done quite a few times but this is the first time I have snowshoed in to the lake. Soo pretty, you couldn't see the lake under all the snow but still pretty. 

On our way up, you can see the rhodi bushes on the sides still have leaves.

Quilt My Grandma Made

26 January 2016 - 08:49 PM

After seeing OZ's fantastic quilts I wanted to share the quilt my grandma made me when I was little. She made it in 1988. All the ladies with parasols were made with left over fabric from clothes and hats she made me when I was little. She used a sewing machine the do the ladies and the squares, but the rest was hand quilted. She had this huge wooden loom that she would put the quilts on that took up the whole living room. I still have the frame stored in my barn.

Back To Monday Again.....

11 January 2016 - 10:04 AM

It seemed the weekend went by way to fast. I went to a zumbathon fundraiser event put on by my gym on Saturday that was raising money for a local family in need. Yesterday went to church, then lunch with friends. 

Getting ready to head to work for the day, then get to end my day with  a fun zumba workout class at my gym with friends. What is everyone up to today? Hope everyone has a great day! 

New Years Day Snowshoeing With Pics!

03 January 2016 - 12:48 AM

Started off the new year with a cold but fun day of snowshoeing! We did about 4 miles around a beautiful lake with fantastic views of the mountain. We have some of the best snow pack we have had in years. It was a sunny but cold day, only about 24 deg. It turned out to be a perfect day to hit the trails. There were 5 people and 4 dogs in our group. Everyone had a great time and the dogs loved the snow! Now onto the pics!
