Days Had

I'm between jobs now, and it is the best feeling.
I have retired from the food biz and never wish to return.
My new job starts August 1, and I'm losing count of days inbetween.

Sunday, we hiked to Glen Lake and were eaten by horseflies. Five mile round trip hike with a 700 foot elevation gain and I'm not proud to say that the uphills killed me. Or that we both were burned by the sun, horrifically.

Most of the hike was through burn forest

So refreshing once we made it to Glen Lake! Water was freezing

Monday, I made an enormous pot of goulash that we're still digging away at.

Tuesday, we drove to Diamond Lake and hiked to Cliff Lake. Though still sore and burnt from Glen Lake, I thoroughly enjoyed this hike. The greenness, the lushness, the lack of horseflies... though I've found at least five mosquito bites today that I hadn't noticed before. I think you can tell how much I enjoyed this hike over Glen Lake hike through the number of photos I took.
