Take a Hike!

Yesterday, Bernie and I had a bit of cabin fever and really needed to get out of the house.  We thought about watching a movie, going to the mall, but with the beautiful weather outside we thought why not go for a hike!

I decided to take my camera along this time and have fun taking pictures.

My hiking buddy decided to walk ahead so I was able to capture my first shot.  He looks like he’s thinking deeply about something…

probably about how awesome he thinks his new hiking shoes are.

I’ve never seen anything like them.  I think they look like gorilla feet, but he swears that they’re great.  Would you wear shoes that look like feet?

As for me, I had my mind on other things like these beautiful lavender colored flowers.  Not sure what they’re called, but the colors were so vibrant that I had to take a shot.  I also took a bunch of pictures of random plants that I thought looked beautiful.

We even found some cute bunny tracks complete with mommy and baby footprints!  We were so excited when we found them.  We actually spotted the bunny family, but they were way too fast for us to get a good picture.

And we couldn’t leave without taking a few pictures of ourselves.

Bernie’s a natural in front of the camera.

It was such a fun day, but we were exhausted after our two hour hike so we rewarded ourselves with some yummy Indian food a la Trader Joe’s.

Now back to the daily grind!
