A Hike Up Mission Peak

Monday, May 26, 2014

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day! I always feel especially grateful on days like this one for the wonderful country we live in. So many people have sacrificed so much for our freedom and I could never thank them enough. 

We spent the day hiking up Mission Peak over in Fremont with our new friends Lauren and Patrick. 

It was bloody hot and super steep but we made it to the top ;-) I would definitely advise bringing water. It is all uphill with hardly any shade but we had a lot of fun. We had so much talking and getting to know each other better but we had to cut back on the talking because we were so out of breath from the incline! 

Also, I couldn't believe how dry it already is! We are in the middle of a severe drought and I miss the green so much. Please pray for rain in California!

  13. Although in the middle of a drought, it still is a very gorgeous view. I've always wanted to go to California - I'm so used to East Coast. I don't think I've ever been to a desertous area (not that Cali is a desert lol)
