"You're Almost There"

Yesterday we took a "Ladies Hike" up Pilchuck Mountain! It totally kicked my butt...but it was amazing! I can't remember exactly but I think the elevation was around 5,000 ft and the views were indescribable. Tim has hiked this one several times so I have seen his pictures but now I can totally admit that the pictures do not do it justice!

There were only 4 of us that went and we had such a great time...great converstion, lots of laughter, even some tears, special memories and new friendships! So thankful for what God does in my life including special times like yesterday!

Here we are! I think this is about half-way up although I feel like people said "You're Almost There" knowing they were lying to us! :)

Finally at the top!

I am laughing in the face of this mountain that thought it could conquer us! :)

Kathy...enjoying the fact that it's all downhill from here!

I am Kathy...hear me roar!

This is our dear friend Robin (or Penny Parker!) who is extremely scared of joke! Unfortunately for her she is also extremely competitive. :) So, when the rest of us decided to go up into the lookout she had to do it too. Then when the rest of us climbed out of the lookout and over to the infamous "rock" she had to too! This is her trying to convince herself to step out of the lookout!

This is her half-way to the "rock"...clinging to everything she can!

She finally made it! It was amazing to watch her conquer her fear...although I'm pretty sure she'll never do it again! :)
