INVIGORATING!!!!!

Yep Dona,  definitely enjoyed my day today in the mountains   it was invigorating as i wanted it to be   my nephew and i went, the neighbors backed out and we both were happy about that    we got up there about 2pm and hit the La Luz trail    i wanted a good hike today   i got it!  YEAH!!!  we hiked about 3hrs   in the midst of the hike we found a location where we could see rock climbers   that was really kewl too   we'd both love to do that sometime   maybe in the future   my nephew loves nature as much as i do  and i was extremely happy that my knee held up pretty damn good today   hardly needed the hiking cane   after the 3hr hike, we grabbed a bite to eat sitting out on the deck of the gift shop   drenched in sweat, the very cool breeze chilled us and we dawned our sweatshirts   the temp up there was fantastic  at least 10degrees cooler than the city with a very nice cool breeze   after lunch we headed out for a brief hike to the Rock House, now called the Kiwanis Cabin   it's stone rock and sits on the edge of the mountain with a fantastic view   Kyle got an idea for him and Nicole, his fiance, to get married up there   i like the idea  (i just found out late last week, they're not officially married yet)   anyways, when she comes to visit, he'll take her up there and ask her about it....after getting to the cabin, the storm started moving our way   rain, lightening, thunder & very dark clouds   it was a very good thing we put on our sweatshirts for now it was like a cold spring air, but it felt sooooooooooooooo gooooooooooooood!   as we headed down the mountain, it was raining and it stayed that way all the way home   we even heard weather warnings on the radio   the streets and road were flooded   monsoon season is here!  yay!   let's see how long it last   right now it is nice and cool   tomorrow is another day, but today is a great day   my Soul is rekindled  my Spirit is stronger  i have more strength to endure the journey ahead   all conditions permitting, next weekend we will do it again....

It sounds wonderful.......I wish we cold get some of that rain. I am so glad that you got to go to the mts. and that you had good company, but not too much company with you.   A good storm is exciting.    Anne

    You needed the break, glad you got it. It seems kind of funny though when you think about it. You walk for a living, and then again for fun.

Nothing like nature to give your sould a jumpstart. I think a wedding in the place you mentioned would be really romantic too.
