We went hiking yesterday. It wasn't suposed to be a hike exactly. We were driving to Todd Lake (never been there) managed to get stuck in some snow (In July!?!) waited for an hour or so until some drunk guys came by and pulled us out. Then the road was washed out and all the signs were missing, so we started hiking up the trail, thinking the lake had to be "just up ahead" right? But aparently we missed it entirely. Anyhoo, the hike was beautiful, the weather was cool, and I have no complaints. We google-earthed the lake when we got home, so we know where it is for next time. Though, I think we're going to try to take the kids to Paulina first. It's a bit lower in altitude so the kids will probably enjoy swimming a bit more and there are hot springs! So cool!

More Handpainted Yarn! I love how these came out. The ww yarn is a mix of purples/blues/pinks, hopefully gender-neutral enough for the mama who is receiving. I believe she plans to knit some longies for a coming babe. The blue/purply one is a bulky yarn I love dyeing & knitting with this one, and I still have 2 more skeins of it to dye! (Thanks again to Shannon!)
