Poor Micah is home today with a very awful stomach thing. We had a pretty eventful evening when he suddenly threw up (all over me) and then (seriously) about 30 more times throughout the night. Poor guy. Today will be a restful day inside with some chicken soup simmering. Just as well as the wind is tearing through the treetops and the rain continues to beat out the snow.
I think the winter is finally messing with my body and I am just really ready for spring… and I know it’s too early to be feeling this way. We could still have another five months of this. So… thinking about happy things! Like this date hike Brian and I took on Gold Ridge last July, just the two of us. We had a few hours’ window in the evening so we took the Mount Robert’s Tram up to shave a few miles off the trek. We had the best time and it was an incredibly beautiful night (night!). Oh to feel that warm sun again.
I have serious vertigo being up this high. The cliff on the right side of the photo goes straight down to the basin… Not my favorite part of the hike, but exhilarating once it’s over.
One of the many marmots we saw (and heard). They’re talkative little fellows.
Snow in July… funny now that it seemed like such a novelty then!
Looking back toward the Juneau Ice Fields.
I have to give Brian major props… he just had a huge career accomplishment after working incredibly hard for years. He makes a girl proud.
I knew 2012 was going to be a good year.
