Today Angel (Above) and I went for a hike.
We went south, to the Chuckanuts, to hike the Pine and Cedar Lakes Trail.
This is a great trail for me to get back in shape on,
Its a steep climb up, and reminded me I have not been very active this winter.
Huff and Puff.
Our sun was shining today! Well at least this morning.
After a nice 2 mile climb up the steep old logging road,
We arrived at Cedar Lake.
I took this picture from in the shade, and spotted a bench basking in the sun on the other side of the lake.
We migrated to that bench, and I took a little cat nap basking in the sunshine.
My soul soaked up some much needed sunshine,
While Angel listened to the squirrels and other small wildlife scurrying around.
After my little rest, we climbed up a trail to a view point above the lake.
It looks out across some of our clearcut hills toward Mt. Baker and the Twin Sisters.
It almost looks like Mt. Baker is lounging across the foothills in this photo.
Basking in the sunshine.
Angel and I started back down, taking a hidden side trail back down to the main trail.
My legs felt like rubber on the steep downhill.
Tonight my body is happily tired!
A wonderful reminder to start getting in shape for the up coming hike.
Bernie went on a slightly different adventure today,
And got some amazing photos of his own.
