Weekend Mountain Getaway
We’re back! Refreshed and restored, as the mountains never fail to do. We hiked 3.5 miles up to Matlock Lake. Let me tell you, the hike is not for the faint of heart! There were moments when I thought I might not make it. But, I pressed on, step-by-step, and at last we crested the hill and found the lake. Daniel guessed my pack was about 35 pounds and his was probably around 60 pounds (because he carries the tent and our food!). Also, he carried Mabel in his arms the entire way up!
The beauty of the water and surrounding mountains was better than any tv show around. It was easy to get lost staring at the scenery for hours. We read, napped in the shade, snacked on trail mix, and got a kick out of watching Mabel watch the chipmunks. We truly unplugged for a couple days, and it was glorious.
Hoping you’re well on this Monday. Saying prayers for you and baby. xoxo
