Happy Monday! Welcome back...
I hope that you had a wonderful weekend that was filled with special moments with your loved ones and friends. What did you do this weekend? Maybe you went to a zoo or park...or maybe you had a "date night" filled with dinner, dancing or a movie. Perhaps, you had a quiet weekend at home and read your favorite novel. You might have decided to begin a decorating project that you had been planning. Whatever the weekend held for you, one thing is certain. Monday morning is always a busy day! Why not take a little time and go on a mental field trip today. Let's pack a lunch and head to a place that I love to go to in the springtime and summer with my family that is not too far from where we live.
The Lupines and other wild flowers are beautiful!
Welcome to one of my favorite spots to clear the mind and renew the soul.
The first time I came to see Hurricane Ridge, I was in awe of the beauty around me.
I could visualize Julie Andrews from the Sound of Music.
As we walk around the trails and make photographs, the deer continue to graze and don't seem to pay us any attention. They are used to the many visitors who come to their little piece ofheaven on earth.
Our music in the car is playing softly as we drive back down the ridge. We spot a fawn or another patch of lupine flowers as we make our way down.
What was your favorite memory of the day? Maybe you loved the mountains or the deer that approached you...or maybe it was the beautiful flowers...
My favorite thing was being able to share it all with you. Hope you enjoyed the relaxing tour of this special place. When you visit Hurricane Ridge, you know why they call Washington the "evergreen state." Thank you for taking a moment on your busy Monday to go on this refreshing field trip with me. I hope you have a wonderful day! xoxo Kim
