River Trail Hike

In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks. ~ John Muir

Spring in the PNW typically means a breezy sunny day followed by gloomy rain/hail clouds the next day. The weather can change drastically in a 24 hour period. It was a lovely sunny day last Saturday. The British Hubby and I thought a hike would be a great way to spend the day. We were both a little stressed from Ernie’s vet visit and hyperthyroid diagnosis. IMG_20180331_1217385The trail we planned to hike was flat and hugged a river. We decided to sleep in and get a later start than we normally would. We arrived at our destination and noticed there used to be a trail sign in the parking lot. Equipped with a map and our gear we started headed on the trail. It didn’t take long for us to realize this was no longer a maintained trail and we weren’t prepared for miles of bushwhacking. 004We did manage to find a path to the river for some stunning views. 001It was hard to stay stressed listening to the water with these stunning views. 005I even managed to get a selfie with my Alpinus I hat. It’s a lovely spring green. 008It’s day 12 of my hot yoga/sauna quest. The quest is helping me relax while we wait for Ernie’s radioactive treatment (just 26 days and 16 hours).

Gracie takes out her nervous energy by attempting to pouncing on Burt. This was Burt’s reaction.
