Mount Saint Helens, an afternoon trip...

Several weeks ago we managed a day trip up to Mount Saint Helens. 
We curled our way through the Washington forests until we reached this most impressive volcanic world…
We did a short trek through one of the lava tunnels where the temperature stays an even forty-two degrees—a most wonderful break from the ninety plus weather we had been enduring above ground...
 What a relief to be far, far away from the city, even if I do love the city we now live in...
  We picnicked by a stream that ran straight down from the mountain…
 The water is still filled with ash from when Saint Helens blew in the early eighties...
The kids had a great time...
Barefoot in the wet volcanic sand...
 What a lovely day...

                                                                  Cheers to Everyone ~

Adventure Day...

Due to our incredibly overloaded schedule, and the fact that life does not only revolve around food trucks that sell pie, we have adopted a tradition that I am most thrilled by. We call it adventure day. Every Wednesdayso far we've been pretty good about itwe do something of note that takes us outside of our neighboring area and into the wilderness. The following pictures are from Fort Stevens State Park...



























                                             Hope Everyone has a wonderful week!!!
