On Wednesday we took a grown-up hike above tree line. It’s wasn’t that long a hike but we gained 800 feet in elevation, it felt so good to get out and up. I love the colors of this time of year how they balance between earthy mellow and acidic without considering softness except for in the shadows.

The way down was steep and we were all bumped and aching knee-ed by the time we got to the car. The Hot Springs felt so good that evening, we could hardly get ourselves to leave in time for dinner.
