A wonderful weekend with two of our favorite people!
Our daughter-in-law, Mary was working near us and we had plans for her to visit this weekend. At the last minute, she found a discount plane ticket and our son Andrew was able to fly down from Minnesota and join all of us. Heaven!
Today, wanting to show the beauties of our area to the newest family member, we drove an hour to the east and hiked a trail back to caves and waterfalls. The ferns and mosses were lovely and the bluffs like walls, rising around the creek bed have given the trail the name "Lost Valley". It was a perfect day....in the high 30's and not windy down along the creek...so we thoroughly enjoyed the 3.5 miles of the hike! A real coming out party for Mr. Pear's new knee!
Now for a cup of warm chai, and to prepare for the Superbowl event. [ I'll be back in a day or so with more photos from the hike!]
With Andrew along the way, (can't miss those bright red gloves!)
