My sister came to Seattle in April. We had a whirlwind weekend exploring some old and new favorite locations. The trip to Salt Creek was planned because I saw a photo on instagram of the tide pools. That started research – mostly on pinterest and instagram – looking for photos and reading about other peoples adventures. It’s funny how much those two sites help me plan adventures. So to those who explore and pin/post on ig, thank you. We had an amazing time.
June was so exciting. We spent a week in California and we had a family reunion of sorts up in the mountains. I’ve mentioned little things about this camping trip here and there and will blog about it soon. The place we camp, Canyon Creek, is accessible only via 4-wheel drive. My mom’s family has been camping there for 47+ years. As a child we would visit California every year or every other year and camping here was always part of those vacations. So it was a HUGE deal for me to be able to take the boys to a place I’ve cherished so dearly from my childhood.
This month I don’t have just one photo to share, rather a smattering of some favorite moments from this trip. The boys and I in the car as we left Seattle, my shadow in the creek as I sat on the rock, standing by the creek, me and my cousin Missy on our hike downstream- which turned into having to swim several times as the water was deep and the cliff walls too high to scale, all that done holding my phone above my head – and the final photo is a family shot in the car as we headed back to Seattle.
