Mt. Spokane 2014

We finally made it to the top of Mt. Spokane!  This is an annual outing I thought we might miss, but we've had unseasonably warm weather and finally got a quiet weekend.  Greg spent the Saturday before last catching up on lawn work, but the following day we drove up and spent several hours there with good friends.  We could not have asked for more ideal conditions.  Almost no bugs (unlike this trip two years ago) and no wind.  It's wasn't too warm or too hot, not many people.  Best of all, the colors were turning!  I don't think we've ever been up there late enough to see fall on the mountain.  I savored every single second from the drive up and being there to the drive back down.  I've decided this is when I want to go every year.

 Look at those colors!

 Oh!  Are you taking my picture?!
 This is a spot Kylen loves.  See a pic of him in the exact same place last year. He looks older!

 I asked Greg to stop on the way down so I could grab a quick shot.  I would have loved for him to stop every few seconds, but that just ain't reasonable, now is it?!  :-)
