Weekend Hike

This weekend my mom and I went on a little hike to a spot where I hadn’t been before, about 40 minutes south of town right at the base of the mountains.  I grabbed my dogs and they had sooooo much fun.  It was SUCH a pretty day, I am glad I lugged my camera out there.

A few flowers were starting to pop up, but there’s supposed to be a ton more in the next few months. I am for sure going back! Next time I hope we see some deer & bunnies (my mom promised there is wildlife there…all we saw were sheep this time).

Fresh Air

This weekend we had a fun little trip up the mountains. After stopping by our wedding venue to take a looksie around, we headed up to about 7500′ elevation to my grandparent’s house in the mountains.
We had a great time just breathing the fresh air, relaxing, taking the dogs for walks. One morning we did a big hike up to a fire lookout WAY, way, way up on a mountaintop overlooking miles and miles of the Sequoia forest. So pretty.
This was our destination, although it probably took us 45 mins or so to even see this.
When we finally got up the the lookout, we had to climb these super scary stairs that were built up the side of huge mountainous rocks. Plus there was some wind. I didn’t get many pictures of the stairs, needlesstosay.
We finally reached the top! The dogs even went!
The views were AMAZING. Seriously..you can see SO far away! 

This little kitten lived up in the tiny lookout with a lady who worked there. Their space was SO small, maybe 12×12 – all they had was a bed and stuff to cook on, it seemed. Crazy.
A helicopter flew over us, they were taking supplies to the lookout.

Anyways, it was a nice little getaway and made for an awesome 3-day weekend. Although we were a bit bummed to leave and come home 🙂 How was your weekend?
