the beautiful northwest

This is where we went hiking last weekend...aren't you just a wee bit jealous? We are blessed to live just a few hours from Mount Baker, and it is simply gorgeous. (You can join us anytime!)



















On the way up, Max was not happy...oh my goodness. He tried the whole "I'm going to hold my breath and pass out on you" and absolutely refused to enjoy the walk. But after a snooze in the backpack, he woke up a new man...ready to go! It was awesome! While holding my hand, he walked for AN HOUR through rocky terrain, hills, steps, and every obstacle imaginable. He just kept going and going...WOW! We were all quite amazed with his tenacity!

Amy, his ears might have bothering him and he wasn't sure how to let you know. I know when I climb up a mountain like that I get quite miserable too. And my behavior may change too.
Glad he was able to take a nap and waked up in a much better humor.

Absolutely gorgeous view! I can't believe Max was such a trooper walking so much...what a nature boy! It looks like it was a beautiful, serene day.
