Yesterday we went up to Hatcher Pass to hike what we like to call Hidden Lake.
The drive up was just splendid !
I love watching the swift running river.
Here are my kids in the hiking finest getting ready for the treacherous
death defying hike.
Up Gold Cord lake trail?
wait a minute where did that singh come from.
It was never there befor.
Were will still call it hidden lake a much better name..
Here we all go fallowing the trail.
Half way up we took a little break.
Here was an old shack left over from the gold mining days.
We got back on the trail and this is where I started to get
Why did I get sick ?
Because I looked down.
you cant tell but it's a long ways down and I was on a narrow ledge.
Now I am not afraid of heights but for some reason I had a panic attack.
Maybe because I started to get vertigo and every thing was spinning.
After several hikers encouraged me that I was almost there I forged ahead to see the splendid beauty that awaited me at the top.
It always takes my breath away when I see the beauty that Heavenly Father created for us.
Who would have ever guessed that this treasure would be awaiting us at the top of the mountain.
So we tried to get pix on the rocks like we have done in previous years but There was never a perfect shot.
In my eyes so I wasent going to share them because I thought we all looked like goofs and I look eight month pregnant setting in that weird position .
Thank goodness I remembered why I blog.
Not for others to judge me or my family but for a keepsake for our family.
So here we are in all our glory.
This is probably the best shot of the whole outing.
Shelly and Missy talking about the mysteries of life.
To me it is a priceless shot.
After a while we cleaned up and started down the mountain.
Let me just say it is so much quicker going down the mountain than climbing up the mountain.
We were almost at the end of the trail when I spotted a fox.
At first I thought it was a dog and then I realized what it was.
If you look to your left by the rock you can see him better.
(if you clique on the pic it will be bigger)
It was the perfect ending to a perfect hike.
Maybe we will go check out the Falls next weekend!
