I sat down today to tell you about what I've been up to for the last month—I've been off having adventures—but I realized that I had forgotten to tell you about one of the nicest hikes that I have taken this entire summer. It was the "birthday hike" Mr. D and I did with his sister Elizabeth. On August 3rd, a few days after her actual birthday, the three of us hiked to Annette Lake. This was one of my favorite hikes last summer, and once again, it didn't disappoint.
We started out by signing in on the trail register:
We enjoyed the trees above, some blossoming columbines and the beautiful trail through the forest.
When we got to the lake, it was time for lunch, and I enjoyed sitting by the lake. The water was a beautiful blue-green in some places and exceptionally clear in others.
All in all, a perfect summer hike!
I have some very exciting hikes to tell you about, but you will have to wait a day or two for those. In the meantime, I'll give you a hint: they aren't in Washington State, or even in the Pacific Northwest.
