“Before I am off to bed, it would help to know what time I need to be ready tomorrow!” is all I asked in preparation for our Friday morning exploring.
I do not need to know much more, it’s not necessary to tell me where the road will lead us, I am ready and packed for all kinds of hikes and weather; the pack is always ready to go and stands in the corner of my room.
Some days looking up at me like it wanted to say “you haven’t been outside this house very much, enjoying nature and spreading your wings!”
Then I am reminded I need to opt outside for the mountains and trails the wonderful PNW has to offer us in such abundance way more than I did these past months.
So, for today, after one week of not hiking, we are heading out and the destination will be Mima Falls, here close to home. Yet I do feel a big summit coming on rather sooner than later. Rain or shine. We are prepared.
