I love my state......

….and it's many beautiful surroundings.  And this place where we picnicked is 5 minutes from our house.

Chad's sister Kerry is here visiting from Belize along with her son Charlie.  The are used to the ocean and sandy beaches, but not mountain streams.

The water level is low, the snowmelt is finished and it has been hot.  We would love some rain.

My dear husband relaxing and enjoying some quit time with his reading.

Sweet Abbie and her sister in law Kerry.

All of the different shades of green.

Located directly by our picnic spot.  Granite!

A nearby cave.

Chad using his scouting skills to prepare the fire.

Chad's mother and I enjoying the evening.  Notice the Quilt Mania bag in the background.

Bruce and Chad's dad roasting the hot dogs.

The perfect ending to a perfect evening...….s'mores.
