Eager to return to trail!

6176695248_IMG_0648.JPGI know we have been MIA for a bit, but rest assured we are still planning to return to the magnificent Pacific Crest Trail. We purchased our plane tickets back to California and have a game plan to start the Sierras. Including today, we have 4 days left of rest, relaxation and knee rehab before hopping on a cross country adventure this Friday. Papa Romero will drop us off at Kennedy Meadows this weekend and we will begin our journey through the scenery below. It will be intense and with the amount of snow ahead this turns into mountaineering vs hiking.

Of course we have been having a great time in Hunter and soaking up the opportunity to just enjoy the mountains, sunsets and quiet time. A couple moments from the last couple weeks…

Special shout out to my family in NY who really made this break from the trail stress free and easy by giving us a fully equipped (even a fireplace!) mountain house to use for as long as we needed. Being hiker trash on a budget, having a free place to stay made all the difference in the world and it doesn’t hurt that it’s in one of our favorite places EVER! Great to visit with the family while we were here. Β Thank you!!!


Scrabble and an afternoon fire make for a great day πŸ’ž

Visiting with the family



Yes, it has been raining a lot while we have been here. Great excuse to take naps, read and lay by the fire…as if we needed an excuse πŸ˜‰



Always important to fit in a visit to a local winery…



Date night πŸ’œ

Bought some thermals for the Sierras. And yes, Rob told me I look ridiculous, but really, who cares?!?😝


Puzzle time on a rainy day with the little one
