The first day at the cabin has been beautiful and perfect! My mom and I decided to take Charlotte up a day earlier than the boys (Jeremy has work until 6.30am on Saturday, and my dad thought he was going to have to work Saturday in the morning). So we got all of our local work done early and headed up around 9.30 this morning.
We packed up her dogs and the car with all the stuff we needed, and headed up the mountain! When we got up here we unpacked the car, took a short stroll/walk/hike with the pups, and then came back to the cabin to finish the work we could do remotely. Finished that up pretty quickly, so we could go on a nice longer walk up the mountain.
We were on the lookout for all kinds of plants, but mainly trying to keep an eye out for the kinds we could forage. Miner’s lettuce grows in abundance in the shady areas, and there are supposedly some kinds of gooseberries and currants up here that make good jam and ice cream and stuff.
The other thing we were on the lookout for are some good hiding spots for geocaches. We probably won’t be hiding anything up here this time, but we are doing some recon so that we can put together some awesome hides for people. Being up here makes my creative juices flow! I’ve only been up here a few hours, and I already love it!
Here are some photos from our second hike – plants we saw, and some wonderful views!
