what a view

September 24, 2006 at 5:21 AM

Today was not my typical Saturday spent doing homework, practicing, baking, or whatever. I woke up feeling ill yesterday and it just got worse throughout the day and by last night it was apparent that I had a bad head cold. This morning I felt pretty rotten and was not looking forward to having to call up my friend and cancel our hike that we've had planned for some time. She works, I work, I go to school, she goes to school. It's pretty hard to find a 4-5 hour window in our schedules that are free at the same time. I was feeling really disappointed about having to phone and say, "sorry, I'm sick" knowing that we likely wouldn't be able to attempt the trail again until the spring. One moment I would think, yeah, I have enough energy to go, the next I felt like I could hardly stand up. I phoned my friend and talked to her and told her my situation so we were at least going to hang out in basement and watch movies with the furry company of her dogs, Max and Licorice. She got out here and we agreed to at least start the hike (which wasn't anything too intense, it was just long) and see how it went. We got going and I began to feel better or at least less bothered by my cold and we had a great time! I took a lot of pictures as the view is absolutely amazing from up there. I'll post some of them tomorrow once I've had a chance to go through them. The weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold and having the dogs along was great! I really miss my canine family member and not only are they great companions they made being out in the wildernress safer thanks to threat of bears, cougars etc. I just absolutely adore being outside in the great outdoors. It was an absolutely amazing time!

Well I'm starting to feel a little lightheaded and think I'll head off to bed here shortly.

I can't wait to see your photos, Kelsey. I'm glad you decided to go anyway. It seems like a moderate hike can make a head cold feel somewhat better. Ah, fresh air!

Linda, cakes are sadly the one area in which I fail miserably. Cookies, pies, mousse I'm good. Cake? Heh.... the kind that's made from a box works well for me. :)
