Walk In The Park.

The annual “Manly-Man Hike” came & went last week & boy was it a beaut!  It was without a doubt the most beautiful area I’ve ever hiked to & may be in contention for the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen!  The only downer was the bugs – hundreds of bugs… everywhere.  Needless to say, I’m covered in bug bites & would like to go a long time before seeing another mosquito. 

For those curious – we hiked out of Rainy Pass off of Hwy 20 & traveled the 11.5 miles to Snowy Lakes/Golden Horn area.  And stayed there 3 days & then hiked out. 

Here’s some evidences of my claims of just how beautiful it is:

Sunset on the mountain & lake behind our camp.

Our little tent by the big mountain & snowy lake.

Me pumping water out of Snowy Lake with Mt. Hardy behind me (the highest peak – actually, we had a couple of guys climb to the top of that peak one day.  I was not one of them.)

Some of our “camp”.

 

“Now THAT’S Called ‘Using Your Head!'” & Other Stupid One-Liners…

That’s all I can do after watching this video – make moronic, predictable cliches…

He really keeps his eye on the ball.

Never give up.

Keep your head in the game.

Players make plays.

It’s never over ’till it’s over.

ugh.
