On Monday afternoon my beloved came into the house and declared the afternoon . .
Having my choice of several options.. .
I took the drive up to Mt. Baker to see the mountain closer than our usual daily view.
We see the mountain from our field and there isn't ever a time that I look at it without wonder at it's beauty.
I've posted pictures of it over the years but I've never taken you there to see it.
Though Mt Baker is in Washington State ..
it is visible all the way to British Columbia and like Judy said yesterday in her post here. .
the view is free.
He coaxed me onto the snow that never melts and we stood there for a moment. .
taking in the scenery around us.
We didn't come to the mountain equipped to hike around...
so we were content to walk the trails closest to the parking lot.
If you have a free day on a sunny afternoon before the snow flies. .
pack a lunch and a thermos and treat yourself and someone you love to a date.
Don't be alarmed if your date begins to make a snowball .. .
just try to capture it!
Though the clouds came and went. .
we looked across to see if we could figure out which might be Hannegan Peak that we hiked and I posted about several years ago.
and looked below to the ski lifts.
We took our time. ..
and walked as far as our flip flops would allow.
When we saw our red truck below. .
we turned back down..
thinking about dinner.
Mt Baker. . .
from near and far.
all for now. .
