Today we went on a little hike. Well, it really wasn't that little... it was probably the steepest hike I have ever done and let me tell you, I have climbed some mountains in my day. So needless to say we got a PRE-TTY GOOD workout in.
But the views were oh so worth it.
We had to stop, well I needed to stop, and take a breather every now and then because that altitude was messin' with by breathing!
Many of you know this little fact about me but a lot of you may not:
I am a total wildflower nerd.
I have been ever since we lived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming one summer and I always will be. If we were to walk through a field of wildflowers in Jackson Hole, no matter what time of year it is, I have no doubt I can tell you the name of every single one. How you may wonder? Because I studied them. Yes I admit I am a wildflower, and really any kind of flower, LOVER.
So, naturally, I took a picture of just about every kind of wildflower I saw on this trail.
A Cactus Rose... I am so excited that they are just starting to bloom!
And these were everywhere you looked.
I had to photograph this odd looking thing/cactus... it was too interesting to ignore.
Sunburn? How about some aloe vera? You can literally cut the stem and rub it on your skin and it soothes a burn!
Overall, it was a really good day.
