So needless to say there's a lot to catch up on around here. I'm gonna start with last weekend cause that requires the least amount of mental exercise in remembering what's been going down since the last time I posted.
Last weekend Nate and I went hiking to my most favorite place ever: Kinder Creek. We go every summer and this is my fourth time taking the quick, yet most scenic trip down the mountain (see here, here, and here). Every year we go I hesitate to blog about it cause really, I don't want other people knowing my most favorite spot ever. Cause then other people go to it. And I don't like other people. Kidding of course. Sort of. Anyway, I think my secret's out of the bag though cause Nate said when you Google Kinder Creek it's all pictures from my blog. Oops.
Our first stop after the hike down hill is this neat beach-y area right at the bottom. The water is always super cold but I make myself go in anyway cause I dunno, I just feel like that's what you should do when you're hiking and it's summer time.
After we (and when I say "we" I really mean just me) finished swimming we crossed to the other side of the creek and moved on to the next spot.
Eventually it was time for the hike back up the mountain. Which totally sucks for two reasons:
1.) It's time to leave Kinder Creek
2.) It's up hill
3.) It's really steep in a few sections
That was more than two reasons...which actually just goes to show how much leaving this place sucks.
So instead of making our way home we decided to take a drive.
And we drove to the other end of the creek. And we played in it.
So anyway, hopefully I can get this here blog caught up with all the happenings that've been, well, happening. And hopefully it won't take me another month to do so. Hopefully.
