Summer Time=Busy

I haven't given up on this whole blogging thing, we've just been busy with a whole lot of summer time activities. In fact, I just got back from a BBH weekend of boating in the Tri-cities. Although, I'm not sure I'm allowed to blog about that.

Anyway, I've actually been writing quite a bit, as I'm working on a rather long entry that is a reflective post on my job rescue and how long term unemployment shifted my perspective on some things. That might sound like a dry blog entry, but I think it is making good therapy for me to write it (even if it sucks to read.) Regardless, it's not quite ready for posting. So, to at least keep this site some what updated... here are a few pictures (and commentary) from our Camping/Hiking trip out to Lake Chelan from last week.

The trail head for our Pot Peak Trail hike. For the record, I didn't see any pot, but I did chew on some grass.

The hike took us through some hilly terrain. And parts of the trail had been hit by a wildfire in years past. It was pretty interesting to see how the forest begins to recover after a wildfire like that. And you can see that some of the switchbacks of the trail were reinforced with brick, for mountain bikers and dirt bike riders. Although, there was really no one else on the trail.

er...a purple flower. What does it mean?

This is me attempting to make coffee without a coffee maker. Our camping french press broke a while back. So, I poked a hole in the bottom of a paper cup and stuck a filter in it. Put some ground coffee in the cup and poured hot water into it. The coffee dripped out into the pot. I can't say it was the best coffee I'd ever had, but we were camping and it did the job.
Making coffee without a coffee pot attempt 2.0. I got tired of holding the cup and came up with this. And no this isn't likely to be BPA free. This is likely why I didn't become an engineer. However, I wasn't that far off the mark.

Anyway, it was a fun camping trip that allowed us to catch some sun away from these darn Seattle clouds. I'll get back to posting more often soon.
