Travis and I skipped school this morning and went for a hike with my parents instead. It was lovely! Cool and (except for some rowdy songbirds) quiet. And just so green!
We were feeling pretty peppy, so we took the 4.5 mile loop trail for a change.
Looking across the waterfall. It boggles my mind that some people look at this and think that walking across on the (obviously) slippery rocks is a good idea.
And there were so many beautiful little wild flowers!
A dwarf crested iris....
and then a whole herd of them!
Aren't they just the sweetest things?
And a gaywing. Isn't that a perfect color?
and a jack-in-the-pulpit!
We got in lots of talking and silliness, as well as admiring flowers, and it was a wonderful hike!
