A Fabulous Fourth Weekend

Hoping all of you had a great summer celebration of our nation's birthday!

We had a terrific extended weekend with our guests flown in via seaplane just for the occasion. It was so lovely to reconnect and make new memories with some of the friends we made in Guatemala. These gals are incredible women. We feel fortunate to have them as friends and were so thrilled that they wanted to come see us on their vacation.

We had lots of tasty food, beach/lake time and hiking altogether. Plus, Jason got to go on a more rigorous hike with them to an alpine lake that Luke & I wouldn't have been able to do. Then they just flew away ... the trailer felt very quiet and lonely come Monday morning once Jason had also left for work.

We're just looking forward to our next adventure with these fun and inspiring women!

The Navigator Trail from Priest Lake through to Upper Priest Lake was supposed to mostly look like the picture on the left. Due to a heavy thunder/wind storm earlier in the week, a lot of it looked like the picture on the right. More of a tree-scramble than a hike!

Allison, Emily & Jason at the trail head for Hunt Lake (after nearly an hour driving on 4WD roads!)

The reason Luke and I stayed home for this one...the entire trail is bouldering. Fun going up, but pretty tricky going down.
