Beautiful Vista

Rachel & I hiked ~4 miles to the base of Mt. Helens at Mayflower Lake, just outside of Breckenridge. We went down the wrong path, and ended up on the wrong side of the mountain…but we met a nice guy from Baltimore who showed us his topo. He also shared his chocolate chips and reminded us it was Father’s day…OOPS!!! (more…)
