Animal Crackers & a Hike

Last night my friend and I went to the opening night of the play, Animal Crackers.

We are so lucky to live in an area full of world-famous, local theaters!  The play had a few glitches, but the actors were amazing and worked the missteps right into the show.  It was a comedy and they had us laughing all night long!

Today I was itching to be outside and said yes immediately when a friend asked me to go on a challenging hike with her.  She is training for a spring trek in the Himalayas.  I have to live vicariously through her!

We set out mid-morning and it was just beginning to warm up in the valley.  But we weren’t hiking in the valley.  Nope.  We planned on a little climb in elevation.

R brought Winslow, The Wonder Dog with her.  I love hiking with him!  He provides a great distraction and constant entertainment.

Ran into a bit of snow, but not too bad.  The trail itself was pretty clear.

We ended up gaining over 1400 feet on our hike.  The views were so worth the climb!  Got about six miles in just under 2.5 hours.

How was your weekend?  Did you spend it inside, outside or both?

Do you go to live theater often?
