So Allan found this Mt. Herman online. The drive up there freaked me the heck out. I have no idea why since I’ve never been scared of mountain drives with steep drop offs before! But once up at the trail head I was blown away but how freaking pretty it was. I could’ve lived up there.
I was feeling dead tired that day and mostly had wanted to stay home and sleep but I was glad to be out in the open air.
We started hiking and I was just so tired. Weirdly tired since I was gradually recovering from the flu. I figured it must’ve been from not exercising regularly. Plain old out of shape?
The further we went, though, the better I felt! I enjoyed the trip. The kids did, too. Even though they complained a bunch (and one kid more than others) they loved it and I’m sure will have only good memories of it!
When Allan came back I asked him if he could help me get a picture of Everett on this log. Allan likes to just hike hike hike and not stop and look around so I knew he was feeling antsy to just start powering up the mountain. But I like to take pictures… I could just take like ten hours hiking- stopping every two feet to snap photos. I try to compromise by not stopping as often as I am inclined to but I know the stops we make are still too many for Allan’s liking.
