Yesterday was a good day! Brian and I both got to sleep on till 8:30AM which never seems to happen! We then pack the cooler, loaded up the car and headed up to the mountains for an adventure!
My Guide[/caption] Brian grew up here in the Methow Valley and he knows it like the back of his had. I am lucky enough to be married to Brian and have my own mountain guide at hand everyday! Brian gets very excited about heading up into the high country!
The Views are absolutely amazing on all sides and the weather was perfect! Brian and I both opted to bring our light-weight Salomon Tech jackets which were good sun and wind protection. After long climbs we could simply wrap them around our drink belts and continue to move fast.
Brian "cruising" he doesn't even sweat when he runs with me!
|Gorgeous running at 7,000 feet|
I on the other hand just try to keep up!
Especially when things get technical. After yesterday's run I now have a new level of comfort when running in the mountains!
One of the three peaks we reached. This one had beautiful views of Mt. Baker and Mt. Shukstan.
After a long day in the mountains we were excited to rinse off in the swimming hole.
As you can tell it was a little colder than we expected. After "icing" our legs and bodies we headed back to the yurt to make meatloaf for dinner with the Gregg Family! Such a good day and I feel like the luckiest girl in the World!!!
