Sevda hiked with us today. She's such cheery company - plus is a wealth of knowledge on local flora & fauna -- a big plus for us.
We hiked through logged hills -- weaving in and out through patches of older and newer timber. And the huckleberries today were fabulous. We couldn't resist. We had blue-stained teeth and lips most of the day.
Wind in the east brought smoke haze over the Cascades. A fire near Yakima (& another in Idaho?) back behind us and to the east. What a combustible year.
Much conversation among us while hiking about how awesome it might be to live in Seattle. What a culture for adventure the city apparently shares with Colorado. The Olympics, the Sound, the Cascades, Mt Rainier -- the city is surrounded by wild beauty.
